RACINE - After the deadly shootings at a spa in Brookfield, a high school student from Racine is raising money for a victim's family.

Thomas Stark, a senior at Horlick High School, has organized the sale of purple "One Big City, One Big Family" tees at his school on Friday.

Cary Robuck, who was 35, was one of three women shot and killed by Radcliffe Haughton on Sunday at the Azana Salon in Brookfield.

"I lost my father in 2007, and I know what it's like.  I knew I had the opportunity to step up and raise funds for this family," said Stark to TODAY'S TMJ4's Melissa McCrady.

"Racine and Southeastern Wisconsin...really has stepped up and helped."

The sleeve of the t-shirt also says  "Lift us up, carry us through."

Stark and his classmates will sell shirts from 1:30 until 3 p.m. and from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. in the back of the Horlick High School fieldhouse.

He says there's a bigger effort to go along with the t-shirt fundraiser.

"It's more than a t-shirt.  Donations are accepted.  (Racine-area salons are) putting purple hair extensions in.  We just want to raise as much money for the Robuck family as we can."
