FISHERS, Ind. — A donut shop in Indiana completely sold out after it pledged that 100% of Tuesday's proceeds would be donated to the families of three teenagers who were killed by an alleged drunk driver.
The wreck happened on Monday during the early morning hours in Spartanburg County, South Carolina.
The victims were identified as Brianna Foster, 18, who was a recent graduate of Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, and twin sisters, Elleana and Isabella Gaddis, 17, who were seniors at the Indianapolis-area school.
Police in South Carolina said the teens died when a Hummer driven by a 43-year-old woman hit their sedan. She was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident.
On Tuesday, Jack's Donuts in Fishers held a fundraiser to show support for the victim's families with 100% of sales going to the families of the victims.
By about 9:40 a.m. ET, the donut shop said it officially sold out after receiving more than 100 orders and baking until 3 a.m.
In the end, the shop says it was able to raise about $6,000 for the families of the teens.
“Thanks to our community for their support and generosity,” said the shop.
What an AMAZING turnout at Jack’s Donuts Fishers @jacksdonutsfis1 from this AMAZING community to show support for Bri Foster, Elle Gaddis and Belle Gaddis. Unfortunately we have sold out but people are still buying espresso drinks and gift cards to show their support ❤️ pic.twitter.com/mSDx1e4P4p— jacksdonutsfishers (@jacksdonutsfis1) August 17, 2021
