Fundraiser for Children of Couple Killed in Sussex Co. Crash

Posted: Updated:

MILTON, Del.- Less than a week after the death of a beloved Sussex County couple, the Milton community is coming together and organizing a fundraiser to support the family.

Eduardo and Priscilla Saez were both killed in a head-on car crash last Wednesday on Rt. 113 in Lincoln. The couple leaves behind two sons and a teenage daughter.

Irish Eyes, a restaurant in downtown Milton, is hosting a silent auction fundraiser later this month to raise money for the Saez children. Maryellen Kiernan, a manager at Irish Eyes, said the response from the community has been overwhelming.

"It's just tremendous," said Kiernan. "It took me over two hours to go through the emails the Facebook messages."

Eduardo's brothers, Juan and Jose Saez, opened a trust fund for the children on Wednesday, exactly a week after Eduardo and Priscilla were killed.

"So much love, so much love to really help us get through this, to get through the process of funeral arrangements and everything, and again we are just so thankful," said Jose Saez.

The silent auction fundraiser is scheduled for Sunday June 30 from 2-7 p.m. at Irish Eyes in Milton. All are invited to attend.
