A benefit is being held today to help offset the final expenses of a Riverbend teen. 14-year-old Destiny Garrett died October 16. Her family and friends are gathering today at the Alton VFW on Alby Street for a full afternoon and evening of fundraising and companionship.
There will be a silent auction, raffles, food and music from 2-11pm. An acoustic trio will kick off the music, with local bands Leadfoot and Toast donating their time as well. If you cannot attend but would like to donate to the family, and account has been set up at 1st MidAmerica Credit Union in Destiny’s name.
