Detective Elise Ybarra Benefit at Buffalo Gap Red Dirt Pavilion on Friday, August 25

ABILENE, TX (KRBC) - The city of Abilene continues to mourn the loss of detective Ybarra, who lost her life in a fatal car accident two weeks ago.

This Friday, the "Detective Elise Ybarra Benefit" will take place to support the Ybarra family, the Abilene Police Department, Detectives Robert Collins and Chris Milliron, who were involved in the accident, and their families.

"The Tundra Club is actually handling all of the work, all of the fundraising, all of the auction, all of the donations," said Adam Becker, President of the Abilene Police Officer's Association. "Once all of the money is raised, they are going to present a check to the Association and then we will then disperse it to the families that are needing the money."

The event is being put on by the Abilene Texas Tundra Club and the Abilene Police Officer's Association. The Texas Freedom Offroad and Kirk House have also helped out in the planning of the event.

The event will feature live music, food trucks, raffles, and silent auctions during the event, said Becker.

"There will be several musicians there and there's going to be several items that'll be auctioned off as well to raise funds," said Becker. "Those items have been donated by several local businesses and we are very thankful for that."

The gates for the event will open at the Red Dirt Pavilion at 5:30 P.M. Music will start at 6 P.M. and the even will run until midnight.
