PORTLAND, Ore. — A restaurant in north Portland is holding a fundraiser for the family of the two teens who died in a tragic car accident on Wednesday.
Ana and Kaylee Moreno-Hernández died after their car drifted over the center line and hit an SUV. The driver of the SUV survived the crash, according to authorities.
Since the accident, social media has been alight with condolences being sent to the Moreno-Hernández family from strangers, family and friends.
On Tuesday, May 28, at Dub's at Marie's a fundraiser will be held from 5-10 p.m. All of the proceeds will go to the family.
"They have the support of the whole entire community," said William Travis III, the owner of Dub's. "Losing their loved ones like that, especially losing both of them at the same time, it's just super hard."
Services will be held on Tuesday at Holy Cross Catholic Church. A viewing and vigil with the family will be at 8:30 a.m., followed by a rosary at 10 a.m. and a mass of Christian burial at 10:30 a.m.
De La Salle North Catholic High School will be closed Tuesday to allow students, families, and staff to attend the services.
In a statement the school said:
The entire De La Salle North Catholic High School community is grieving the loss of the wonderful sisters, Ana Moreno-Hernández, Class of 2018, and Kaylee, who was a 9th grader at Central Catholic High School. De La Salle North Catholic will be closed on Tuesday, May 28 so that students, families, and staff may attend their services.
