CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Just one week after five teens' lives were changed forever, their community has pulled together to support them.
On Friday, March 8th, five teens from Tuloso-Midway high school were involved in a single-vehicle crash in Robstown.
Justin Franco was killed by the accident and four other teens in the accident were seriously injured.
To support the crash victims, high school administration and the Tuloso-Midway Booster Club organized a barbecue and silent auction as a fundraiser.
All of the money raised went to the families affected by this tragedy. Football Coach Wade Miller said they aimed to raise $11,000, but hours before the event ended, he said they were set to raise much more.
"The response from the community has been awesome, I mean, just what can we do to help? How can we do this? How can we do that?" Miller said.
All of the food and silent auction items were donated to the event. Additionally, bracelets in memory of Franco were sold for five dollars.
