Celebrating Life of Young Delhi Crash Victim
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - On Saturday, there was a huge turnout at a fundraiser to raise money for the funeral of recent Oak Hills High School graduate Courtney Stafford. She was killed in a crash Sunday, September 22 on Delhi Pike. The vehicle she was driving crossed the center line on Delhi Pike and hit an ambulance. Stafford, who was 20 years-old died at the scene.
The fundraiser was held Saturday afternoon at Veterans Park on Harrison Avenue in Green Township. There was a benefit walk and people wore t-shirts printed for the occasion that said "Rest in Paradise Princess."
Courtney's father, Bill Stafford, was at the event. He was overwhelmed by how many people were touched by Courtney and made it to Saturday's event.
"That's just how she was. She was very helpful, very thankful. And from the turnout I can see how many lives she touched," he said.
One of Courtney's friends, Heather Griffith, said while she's still grieving over Courtney, attending Saturday's event helped her see how much Courtney had touched the community where she lived.
"It's amazing, it's hard not to cry and be sad and upset. But it's nice to see that everyone's out here celebrating Courtney's life, even people that met her for a day or two . . not people that have met her for years. It's nice to see," she said.
The event raised close to $8600.
