Friends hold fundraiser after toddler death

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Family friends are reaching out to help after an 18-month old drowned in Cook County. Lacy Shaylin Griffin drowned two weeks ago.

Friends are selling barbecue plates and hosting an event at Moose Point at 11 o'clock Sunday morning. A live band will play and a corn hole tournament will start at 1 o'clock.

"I think that you have a moral obligation to people in life. And as members of our lodge, when we have a need for one of our members, we all come together. Plus, our community comes together," said organizer Sara Collins.

All proceeds will pay for the funeral. Anything left over will be donated to charity.
