SHERMAN, Texas (KXII) - Advocacy group Students Against Destructive Decisions held a fundraiser Saturday afternoon to honor the four Durant teens who were killed by a drunk driver last month.

Durant High School student Dylan Nelson was friends with the four teenagers killed last month. Kaleb Foster, Jack Sarver, Fernando Flores and Hunter Ford were rear-ended by Bradley Shawn Pittman.

Troopers say the 42-year-old was driving drunk at more than three times the legal limit. He is charged with four counts of second-degree murder.

“I wouldn’t wish this upon anyone and I want to help so they know what can happen and I want to prevent it,” said Kinlee Hill, a member of the new Durant Chapter of Students Against Destructive Decisions, SADD, a national organization raising awareness against the dangers of drugs, alcohol or distracted or impaired driving.

Members held a charity lunch at the Roadhouse in Durant honoring the boys. Event organizers held the charity lunch at the Roadhouse in Durant Saturday honoring the boys.

With the help of corporate sponsors, event organizer Melissa Hill says they are hoping to raise money to create a community zone for teenagers.

It would be a social alternative to hang out. The group is also in talks with local churches to host these gatherings and will be hosting more fundraisers in the future.
