Medford, Ore. – Update 06/13/18: Cold Stone Creamery in Medford says it raised almost $4,500 dollars for the families of the Eagle Point High School seniors who were killed in a wrong way crash in May.
During a fundraiser on May 31st, $3,322 dollars was raised from ice cream sales, and another $1,156 dollars came in through donations. All of the money has been deposited into an account at Rogue Credit Union. The funds are being split between each of the teen’s families.
05/31/18: Support continues to pour in for the families of three Eagle Point teens killed in a wrong way crash.
Today, Cold Stone Creamery donated all its profits and tips to the Eagle Point girls’ memorial fund at Rogue Credit Union. Both John L. Scott Real Estate and S.B. James Construction Management picked up the tab for two hours of sales today. The owner says customers filed in all day long to show support.
“We thought well you can go to one of those GoFundMe’s or whatever type of fundraising deals and put in some cash, but we thought the better way to do this was to leverage the community support,” Owner, Blair Sundell said.
Cold Stone is hoping to announce the final donation amount for the girls’ memorial fund later tonight/tomorrow morning. And a reminder — Black Rock Coffee in Eagle Point will be donating 100 percent of tomorrow’s proceeds to the families of the three girls. They’re open from 5 am to 9 pm.
