A benefit is being held for a Wilkes-Barre woman who tragically lost her life in December.
Brittney Reynolds, a Hanover Area graduate, was only 26 when she was allegedly murdered in her home by a Philadelphia man who has since been charged with her death.
“I didn’t know Brittney, but I am from the same neighborhood and knew I needed to do something,” said Candice Woolfton, of Wilkes-Barre.
After seeing the story on the news, Woolfton organized the benefit that will help Reynolds’ family cover expenses in their time of need.
The benefit will be held from 2-6 p.m. Sunday at Border Bar, 333 Laurel Street, Pittston.
Cost is $10 with live comedy from a variety of comedians, live music by Sound Service DJs, and a basket raffle. So far, they are expecting nearly 100 people to attend.
“Laughter is what we need right now. We want to celebrate Brittney’s life and show there is still a sense of community,” Woolfton said.
