CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- A holiday fundraiser raised $5,000 to support the members of Chippewa Falls Girl Scout Troop 3055.

Three members and one parent of the troop were tragically killed last year in November, while participating in community service along County Highway P in Lake Hallie.

Lasker Jewelers says the store embraced the theme that cardinals appear when angels are near. As a result, a cardinal ornament fundraiser was held during the holidays.

Customers donated $15 per ornament and Lasker matched each donation 100 percent.
