Bake sale held to benefit 12-year-old car crash victim

Posted:

A bake sale was held Saturday at the Niles YMCA to help with funeral costs for 12-year-old Adrian Chiquito

He's the boy who was killed in a car accident New Years eve when his 14-year-old friend was behind the wheel.

Those at the bake sale tell us they just wanted to do something to help support the family.  They knew Adrian well and say he was a well mannered kid known for his smile and dimples.  "He was a great kid, always had a smile on his face.  Actually the day before he died I seen him.  I was out shoveling snow and he told me that shoveling snow was not a woman's job and he took my snow shovel and shoveled my driveway," said family friend Tara Austin.

There will be a vigil for Adrian on January 8th and another fundraiser on January 26th.  The vigil on the 8th will be held at Niles Brandywine High School at 7 p.m.  The fundraiser on the 26th will be held at Franklin Woods in Niles.  It will be a chili cook off, bake sale, and silent auction.

If you'd like to help out, Brown Funeral Home in Niles will accept donations.
