Friends of a Mobile woman who was killed outside her home earlier this year are holding a benefit to help the children of the slain woman.
An event called "Wendy Fest" is planned for Thursday night in the port city to help the two children of Wendy Fisher, a widowed single mother who was shot to death in July.
A block-style party with food, auctions and music will be held at the Haberdasher, where Fisher was working at the time of her death. It's on Dauphin Street, a popular entertainment district in Mobile.
Fisher was shot on July 7 in front home after a confrontation with a passenger of a car she had told to slow down in the neighborhood.
Two men are charged with murder in the shooting.
