The employees at the Sonic Drive-Ins in Nicholasville are gearing up for a big crowd this Thursday.
Both of the Nicholasville Sonic Drive-Ins will be hosting a car-hop to raise money for the family of Adrian Howard. Howard is an assistant manager at the Fayette Mall Sonic. His 3-year-old daughter and his mother were both killed in a car accident last week.
Katherine Howard and Lillian Clarke were traveling with three other family members when the accident happened. They were on their way to Lexington from Florida for a church event and family reunion. They were stopped on I-75 in Tennessee when they were rear-ended by a semi-truck. The other family members survived the crash.
The fundraiser for the Howard family will be held Thursday from 5p.m. to 9p.m. at the Sonic Drive-Ins on Bellerive and Village Parkway in Nicholasville.
