Trevor Martin Benefit
HERRIN -- Loved ones of Trevor Martin hosted a benefit Saturday afternoon to help pay his medical and funeral expenses, after he was severely injured in a fight this last summer. The benefit began with a sloppy joe dinner at the Herrin KC Hall, followed by a silent auction and a raffle.
Authorities say Martin was critically hurt during a fight at a Creal Springs home in June. He died five days later. Investigators still are not saying much about what happened.
Trevor's friends and well-wishers now hope to financially help his family.
"It's been great, I mean there's been people that's done stuff, we didn't even know their names and now there's a lot of people we know because of this benefit," explains Trevor's grandmother Brenda Huckleberry.
If you couldn't make it to the event, you can still donate to the Trevor Martin Memorial Fund a Legence Bank in Vienna.
