Benefit/Silent Auction

Sunday, August 30th 2015 - 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The friends of Alicia Hummel have planned a benefit and silent auction on August 30th from 4:00- 7:00 p.m. in Alicia’s honor. We are asking any community members and/or businesses to donate food, drinks, and/or silent auction items for a hot dog/walking taco feed in Alicia’s honor on August 30th. If you are unable to donate at this time a memorial fund has been set up at Great Southern Bank in Sioux City under Alicia Hummel. With the money raised at the benefit and through her memorial fund, the family will be able to help alleviate the financial costs of Alicia’s premature death as well as continue to seek justice for Alicia.

On June 1, 2015 the lives of friends and family of Alicia Hummel (Folkers) was dramatically changed. Alicia left to go fishing and enjoy her first day of vacation. Alicia looked forward to being able to relax and catch some fish as she soaked up the sun at Myron Grove State Park near Meckling, SD. Alicia however, would never return home. She was brutally murdered while at Myron Grove State Park. There has been no one arrested in connection with Alicia’s death and the case remains unsolved at this time.
Alicia was a fun-loving, energetic woman who had a zest for life. She loved to fish, dance, and spend time with friends and family. Alicia was looking forward to celebrating her 30th birthday on June 27th and had dreams of returning to school to obtain her Masters of Special Education at USD this fall.
Alicia’s death was unexpected and a great loss for all those who loved her. It is the hope of the friends of Alicia to keep her story alive and bring justice to the person/s who took her life too soon.
