Holli and Jessica Harker were two of five people killed in a fire in Sherrard nearly 2 weeks ago.
And tonight, all these people came together to help ease the Harker family's pain with a spaghetti dinner, silent auction, and bake sale.
All proceeds are going to the Harker family.
"All the tables are full, the food's being fed, we have probably 80 items in some of the auction areas," said event organizer Master Duane Spellious.
It's all the brain child of Master Duane Spellious of Spellious Martial Arts.
Holli and Jessica were students at his Tae Kwon Do school.
"And I knew that we were a close family, but I know this will make us closer," said Master Spellious.
He said the tight-knit Tae Kwon Do family wanted to do something to ease the Harker family's loss, plus their own grief, after the tragedy.
Aubrey, also a student at Spellious Tae Kwon Do, knew the Harker sisters
"When I found out that it was the Harker girls that died in the fire, I guess at first it didn't really hit me that they were gone until, it hit me really hard the other day when I went to the visitation," said Aubrey.
She said the outpouring of support is helping her heal.
"It just feels really good to help them in any way that I can," said Aubrey.
Master Spellious said nearly 700 people attended the spaghetti dinner.
And the Harker family will be getting over $15 thousand to help pay for Holli and Jessica's funeral expenses.
A small piece of relief after all that they've lost.
