Fundraiser planned for Erica Sevigny reward fund

Fundraiser planned for Erica Sevigny reward fund

The Sparta Moose Lodge #50 is planning a fundraiser to raise money for the Erica Sevigny reward fund, and the flyers can be found around Sparta and Rockford.

Sevigny was killed Easter morning last year after getting into an accident at 14 Mile Road and Pennington in Sparta.  Sevigny survived the accident, but was hit and killed by another driver while she was on the phone with state police.

Investigators have not found the driver responsible.

Sevigny's death left two small girls motherless.

The Moose Lodge fundraiser on Saturday, March 26th will feature music by Billy Dalton.

Funds raised by the event will go both to the reward fund and the children's education.

You can find more information about Sevigny on Facebook.
