Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The families of two girls that were killed in Sunday night's shooting on Cheryl Drive will be gathering for a rosary at 7 p.m. Friday at Seaside Memorial Park & Funeral Home.

Friday night's rosary will be held for both girls, while separate funeral masses will be held Saturday. The funeral for six-year old Nevaeh Oliva will be held at 10 a.m. At Seaside; the funeral for two-year old Lilliana Valent will be held at 1 p.m. at Saint Joseph's Church.

The community has really stepped up to show support for the families of the two little girls. Several benefits have been planned to help raise money for them.

One major event will be held from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday at the Blue Room, located at 5301 Kostoryz Road. Lilliana's father plans to pay it forward and donate money raised at the event to the family of four-year old Emma Rose Sanchez, who was killed Thursday after a barbecue pit fell on top of her.

Another benefit will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday at Texas Battery on 4710 Ayers. Money from this event will also go to the family of six-year old Greg Martinez, who was killed after being run over by a truck last weekend.

There will also be a benefit at 10 a.m. Saturday at Mario's Used Cars, located at 2840 Baldwin, near Greenwood.
