A benefit Sunday raises money for the children of a LaSalle County couple that died in a car crash late last year.

Dale and Tonya Shannon's vehicle crashed into a pole in December 2010. Dale Shannon died instantly. Investigators determined Tonya Shannon went to get help and later died of hypothermia as she walked through a farm field.

Sunday's fundraiser benefits the couple's four surviving daughters. It was scheduled for 1 p.m. at Jerry's Tap in Ransom.
