Habitat fundraiser in honor of murdered Lexington woman

By  | 

Family and friends of a murdered woman are using her memory to help others.

Amanda Ross was shot and killed outside her Lexington home last September. Her ex-fiance, Steve Nunn, is accused in her murder.

Friends and family are planning to sponsor a Habitat for Humanity home in her honor, and build it this fall.

A fundraiser took place at Al's bar on North Limestone Sunday night, to raise money for their cause.

"Amanda loved this city, she loved this state. and everyone knows she worked to improve it." said Rob Turner, a friend of Amanda Ross, "so we're here to do the same thing."

Live music and a silent auction helped raise around $10,000 at the fundraiser.

All of the proceeds go towards building a Habitat for Humanity house in Lexington. It costs $42,500 to sponsor a home for a needy family.

The group is still around $20,000 short of their goal. The deadline is next month.
