Twenty-one-year-old Laura Acevez lost her life on New Year's Eve in her Eureka Springs apartment. She left behind a 7-year-old daughter and infant son who are now being cared for by their grandparents.
However, the tragedy has strained the family emotionally and financially.
Friends have established a memorial fund at Cornerstone Bank. Money raised will aid the family in recovering and caring for the children.
To donate, visit any of the bank's locations in Berryville, Holiday Island, or Eureka Springs. For bank hours or more information, call 479-253-BANK, or visit www.bankeureka.com.
