Event Planned to Help with Gandee Family Funeral Costs

As Sissonville mourns the loss of three people, the families are making funeral arrangements and fundraisers are expected to help. In fact, an off-road riding event is planned to honor MTV reality show star Shain Gandee, who died this week in an SUV accident. The bodies of Shain Gandee, his uncle, and friend were found Monday in a mud pit near his home. Gandee's cousin, Ashley Gandee Lewis, says the event is set for today in Proctorville, Ohio. She says those who want to be involved will meet at 4:30 p.m. at the Proctorville Kroger. The cost is $10 for riders and $5 for spectators. Gandee says she also is accepting donations at a general store she recently opened in Crown City, Ohio. Proceeds will go to pay for funeral costs.
