Nearly $3,000 raised for family after mother killed in crash

DENVER — A weekend benefit raised money to help a southwest Denver family who has fallen on tough times.

The Hangover Bar hosted a fundraiser for the Lucero family on Sunday and raised $2,800.

In January, Robert Lucero and his wife, Shuvonne, were involved in a horrific accident when a speeding car, allegedly driven by a drunk driver, ran a stop light and slammed into the couple’s vehicle.

Shuvonne died, leaving Robert to raise their children alone.

The FOX31 Problem Solvers story caught the attention of local radio deejay Paul Chavez, who organized the benefit.
