PEORIA HEIGHTS, Il. -- Drew Bannister, 28, of Chillicothe was recently killed in a two-vehicle crash in Lake County, Florida.

Bannister's family and friends are working to raise money for funeral arrangements. Donations are being collected through a memorial fund set up at the Chillicothe South Side Bank.

The Hair House in Peoria Heights will also host a Cut-A-Thon and bake Sale Monday, March 18th in his memory.

The event will be held from 10am to 7pm.

All proceeds will be used for Bannister's funeral arrangements.
