Fundraiser For Grandmother Victim March 18

The Dubois Institute of Arts and Social Justice has launched a GoFundMe account at and scheduled a fundraising event at the Movies at Wellington on Saturday, March 18 at 1 p.m. to help a local grandmother in need.

On Friday, Feb. 3, this 64-year-old grandmother, while on her way home from a doctor’s appointment, was caught in the crossfire during a shootout on 45th Street in West Palm Beach.

The driver of a second vehicle trying to escape gunfire plowed into her, totaling her car and nearly killing her. She had to be cut out of her car by fire-rescue workers and rushed to St Mary’s Medical Center, where she is being treated for multiple injuries. The third vehicle got away, and the incident is still under investigation.
