A fund raising effort to build a park in memory of Zahra Baker has passed the halfway point, WBTV is reporting.
About $100,000 has been raised so far, including $10,000 which came from the Greater Hickory Golf Classic in June, according to WBTV. The park is in memory of the 10-year-old girl who disappeared last September. Her remains were found in November, and her stepmother has been charged with second-degree murder in the case.
WBTV says the playground will be designed specially for children with physical disabilities. Zahra Baker, a cancer survivor, had a prosthetic leg.
The next fund raiser is Saturday, at an O’Charley’s restaurant in Hickory.
