True Family fundraiser at Wings, Etc. in Niles

NILES, Mich. -- A fundraiser took place in Niles for a family that lost two young girls to a car accident.

Sophia True, 6, and her older sister, Julianna Brown, 9, were killed on their way home from a school in a car accident.

The community came together and had a fundraiser at Wings, Etc. in Niles to raise some much needed funds for the family. Ten percent of all the proceeds from open till close will go right to the family.

"You know, its a time of need for them," Kym Reese, the fundraiser organizer, said. "We are all coming out to support them so that they can see that we are here for them. It's been a devastation to everybody."

As of 9 p.m., Wings, Etc. told ABC57 that over $1,000 have been raised for the family tonight.
