Friends are trying to raise money for a Falcon family that lost two children this week.
One-year-old Scarlett Gallagher and three-year-old Ryan Willhite were stabbed to death Wednesday on a farm in Falcon. Police say the mother's boyfriend, 22-year-old Ethan Caurou, killed the two children before killing himself.
Friends of the family say they're hosting a fundraiser for the memorials of the two children on Sunday in Monument. It's from 10 am until 4 pm at 231 Front St. in Monument; organizers say they'll have fire trucks, hay rides, and music. They'll be taking donations at the gate.
According to investigators, Caurou had been watching the children while their mother and grandmother were out running errands.
A family friend tells News 5 the grandmother of Gallagher and Willhite set up a memorial account at ENT Federal Credit Union.
If you would like to contribute, the account is called Scarlett and Ryan Memorial.
