Smoothie King hosts fundraiser for Breana Rouhselang, proceeds to go towards memorial
GRANGER, Ind. --- The Smoothie King in Granger partnered with the Mishawaka Fire Department raising money to create a memorial for 17-year-old Breana Rouhselang.
In December, Rouhselang, who was six months pregnant at the time, was found dead in a dumpster behind a Mishawaka restaurant.
Dozens of community members showed up Saturday to help support Rouhselang’s family create a memorial in her honor. All proceeds from smoothie sales will be going towards the memorial which will be at Ward Baker Park in Mishawaka.
“I’m super excited that it’s going to be at the softball field. Since I’ve known her since she was little she was always playing softball. Her dad loved to watch her play. That was her home,” Nicole Rouhselang said, Breana’s stepmother.
After they figure out how much money was made here at the fundraiser today, Breana’s father said they will figure out exactly where the memorial will go at the park and how big it will be.
“It’s just amazing that Smoothie King is willing to do this for my daughter,” Dave Rouhselang said.
