Fire Donations Used For Funeral, Charity



Bookmark and Share

A Sioux Falls bar, which held a fundraiser for the victims of a fatal fire, is letting people know where the money raised is going.

The Crow Bar raised more than $8,000 for Michael Hensley, 16, Savannah Coon, 12, and Alivia Coon, 6. All three children died in the December 22 fire.

On Monday, the children's mother, Rhiannon White, was arrested on drug charges. Court papers say White had meth, ecstasy, and marijuana in her system the morning of the fire.

The Crow Bar says in a statement, "We are surprised and concerned about the information coming forth regarding the Dec 22nd house fire which took the lives of Michael, Savannah, and Alivia. The benefit which was held at the Crow Bar on Jan 5th was held in memory of the children and our focus remains on the children.  The tragic fact remains that 3 children lost their lives in that fire.  Our goal to honor the children's memory has never wavered.  With the support of business and community, we raised $8000. That money was raised in memory of the children and any money not needed to pay for funeral expenses will be donated in memory of Michael, Savannah and Alivia to a local charity which has yet to be determined.  No money has or will be given to Rhiannon or David White."
