Fundraisers are being held to benefit the families of two teenagers that survived a crash on Friday that took the lives of two of their friends.

Family and friends are hosting a fundraiser at Raising Cane's for Jonathon Bartley,18, and Justin Venable, 17, to help pay for medical expenses. Bartley and Venable both survived a fatal three-car crash on I-20 near mile marker 29, just east of I220 in Bossier Parish on July 6th. Bartley, who just graduated from Byrd, suffered serious injuries and remains in a coma in the ICU at LSU Health. Venable also suffered serious injuries and is at Christus Shumpert. He is currently listed in critical, but stable condition.

Arien Manshack, 17, and Megan Mote,16, were both killed in the accident.

The fundraiser will be at the Mansfield Road location on Monday, July 16th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Everyone that mentions the fundraiser will have 15% of their check total donated to Justin and Jonathon's families.

A car wash will also be held for Bartley on Saturday, July 14th at Johnny's Pizza on Barksdale Boulevard from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
