TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The West Vigo Community Center gathered for a benefit to remember the life of 14-year-old Carl Lichte.

Lichte died on January 26, 2022. Organizers of the benefit sold $10 dollar plates of food to raise money. They hope to raise $5,000 dollars.

All of the funds collected will go toward the funeral services.

“It feels good but also sad because of the events why were here,” President of West Vigo Community Center David Elkins said. “I know the kids, I know the family and its very emotional.”
