CLARKS HILL, Ind. (WLFI) - The family and friends of hit-and-run victim Kimberly McDole held a benefit in her honor today.

The event went on despite rainy conditions. People shared memories of her with live music which as we previously reported was one of her passions.

Items donated by community members and organizations were raffled off. All proceeds will go toward her final expenses.

Kimberly's son, Jake McDole, is grateful for the support shown by her neighbors in Clarks Hill.

“A lot of people definitely came together and went above and beyond anything we imagined to put this together for us and we are really appreciative to all of those people,” he said.

Her neighbors have rallied together in a short amount of time to show support for the family.

“Ever since she passed everybody, we have all come together as a community and tried to put this thing on in like two or three weeks,” said family friend of the McDole’s Miranda Seyfried.

Seyfried said she grew up with Kimberly and her family and that she will be remembered for her kindness and her music.

While this event will be a big help to the McDole family, donations in memory of Kimberly will continue to be taken after the event is over.
