Two funds and a fundraiser have been set up to help the Hester family. An account has been set up for the family at the Altra Federal Credit Union. Donations can be made to the Hester benefit fund in both Tyler locations.
American State Bank in Tyler also set up a fund. Donations can be made at the Horseshoe Club Lake fire fund for Bobby and Dixie Hester.
In addition, friends have organized a softball tournament and cookout, with proceeds going to the Hester family. The tournament starts Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Chapel Hill little league field.
