 The Impact 6/21 committee, which combats drinking and driving, has a couple of upcoming events.

The group was set up by the parents of three local teens — Caitlin Jelley, Steven Philippe and Jazmine Houle — who were killed by a drunk driver on June 21, 2009.


 A fundraiser for the committee will be held at Cousin Vinny's restaurant in the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre June 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

A buffet costs $14.95 for adults and $7.50 for kids.

The annual memorial walk in honour of the teens will be held starting at 3 p.m. June 21.

Participants are asked to gather at the Valley East Ball Park located on Joseph Street in Hanmer. They'll be escorted to the site where the crash occurred by Greater Sudbury Police.
