CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Lives were forever changed after a mile-wide tornado swept through the town of Moore, Okla., nearly three weeks ago.
Tim Hearne, a Corpus Christi native and graduate of Carroll High School, lost his home in the Oklahoma tornado. Now, a local effort is underway to help raise money for him and his family.
Samantha Mendoza and Jonathan Garcia, former Carroll High School classmates of Hearne, have organized the "Help Tim Rebuild" barbecue and raffle fundraiser this weekend. The event takes place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, at the New Song Fellowship Church at 3238 Holly Road. For more information, call 361-877-4998.
