CLIFTON PARK - The parents of two, Shenendehowa High School students killed in a crash are taking part in an upcoming fundraiser.

The money raised will go to the Children's Hospital at Albany Medical Center and the Shenendehowa Educational Foundation, which was founded in honor of Christopher Stewart and Deanna Rivers.

Stewart and Rivers were killed in an accident in December on the Northway.

Two other friends were injured.

The event will take place on July 15.

Those attending the event will get a chance to win a custom made motorcycle.

Dennis Drue is accused of rear ending the SUV the teens were riding in.

He is facing several felonies in connection with the accident.
