LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —The effort to help the family of four Flora sisters killed in a fire last year continued in Lafayette Sunday night.
A fundraiser was held at the Hanna Center for the family of the girls.

Visitors had the chance to listen to live music and purchase baked goods.

So far, the Flora's Four Angels Fund has raised over $10,000 for the family. The state has also raised $5,000. Benefit promoter Travis Kearny encourages community members to pitch in.

"Anything that anybody can do I feel is a good thing for her," said Kearny. "So I put my best foot forward and did what I could do for her and anything anybody else does is I'm sure going to be greatly appreciated as well."

Proceeds from Sunday night's event will go to both the Flora's Four Angels Fund, and to the girls' mother.
