Fundraising Raffle for Aniah Blanchard Held on Sunday

HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT)– Aniah Blanchard has not been seen since she disappeared from Auburn on Oct. 24.

The 19-year-old is from Homewood, and in the days and weeks following her vanishing, the network has ceaselessly ventured up to show its help for Aniah’s family.

The city of Homewood is shrouded in bows canvassed in child blue, Aniah’s preferred shading. On Sunday, Escape Day Spa held a raising money wager at their yearly open house. Several dollars worth of items and administrations were given by Homewood organizations as prizes in the pool. The entirety of the cash raised was given to Aniah’s family to help with costs.

“As a mother, I can let you know, I’ve embraced my children much more tightly, it’s placed things into point of view. This family hasn’t left my brain,” said Amanda Leach with Botanica.

Filter’s business gave a $25 blessing authentication. Drain said taking an interest was a simple choice in light of the fact that the whole city needs to support Aniah’s family.

Alicia Liddon and Carrie Holley possess Escape Day Spa. Holley said it was hard to remain positive while she was getting ready for the occasion.

“It’s extremely difficult to be glad and commend, realizing they’re experiencing this.”

The co-proprietors chose a wager would be an ideal method to bring issues to light for Aniah, just as fund-raise.

Holley’s girl, Alex, has been dear companions with Aniah for as long as 10 years. Holley said it’s everything the more close to home since she knew Aniah so well.

“They were closest companions,” Holley said. “Aniah was consistently at my home.”

In five hours, $450 was raised. In the event that you’d like to give, Holley and Liddon will keep on tolerating gifts for the family at Escape Day Spa.
