A fundraiser has been set for the Sonny Melton scholarship fund. Melton lost his life during the Las Vegas Massacre while shielding his wife from bullets. 

His death has sent shock waves through the small Tennessee town of Big Sandy.

His wife, Heather Melton, has been working to raise money for both a scholarship fund and a silent auction fundraiser being held this Wednesday in Paris, Tennessee.

Wednesday's fundraiser will be held at the Krider Performing Arts Center at 7 p.m. 

Tickets are $15. Donations can be made online on the scholarship fund website or checks can be mailed to Apex Bank at P.O. Box 549 Camden, TN 38220.
