Cain's Ballroom Hosts Benefit For Jenks Crash Victims

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

People around Green Country came together at Cain's Ballroom for a benefit concert to help the Jenks families affected by last month's deadly crash in Purcell. 

"For the Love" featured four bands and a silent auction held on Saturday, August 12. It was a family-friendly event, and all proceeds will go to the families.

Erin VanHorn, her ten-year-old son Zach, 11-year-old Beck Kitterman and 13-year-old Lizzie Edwards died in the crash.

"We wanted to do an all-ages show that we could get the kids out and give them some time together before school started," said Stephen Wilson, benefit organizer.

Thirteen-year-old Izzy Kitterman is still in the hospital but is doing better every day, and 13-year-old Lauren VanHorn is back home.
