After their mother died from stomach cancer, a fundraiser is being held Tuesday, Feb. 24 at a Culver’s restaurant to help her three sons. Crystal Watts, a speech and language therapist at Fratt Elementary School, helped organize the fundraiser because she works with Eduardo Lopez-Rojas, a four-year-old boy that she says is a “boy with a huge, sweet smile,” according to a Facebook post. The money will go to the family to help defray the cost of medical bills and funeral costs. “I am writing to you to let you know of a way you could help out this hard-working, kind family in their time of need,” Watts noted in a post on Facebook. The event will be held from 4 to 10  p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24 at Culver’s, 5801 21st St. The family will receive 15 percent of the sales from the event. Before ordering, please let the Culver’s staff know that you are there for Fratt Elementary School so that the money goes to the Lopez-Rojas family.
