Fundraiser set by group fighting dating violence

LEWISTON -- A silent auction fundraiser for a new nonprofit group committed to addressing teen dating violence will be held this weekend in United Baptist Christian Church.

The event starts at 4 p.m. today in the church, at 4800 Creek Road, and drawings for more than 80 baskets will begin at 6 p.m.

Proceeds will benefit the Kari's Candle of Hope Foundation, established by James Gorman Jr. and Kim L. Davidson, the parents of Kari Gorman, 18, of Wilson, who was killed last July by her ex-boyfriend, Shawn R. Wolf, 19, of Ransomville, the day after she broke up with him.

Wolf killed Gorman in his home and killed himself a short time later.

All money raised will be used to help pay to purchase materials for a Safe Dates curriculum.
