A northwest Bakersfield restaurant is holding a fundraiser on Saturday to support the Wasco mother who lost two of her children in a tragic car accident last month. 

Fuego's Taco Shack and Grill is donating 50% of all proceeds from 4 to 9 p.m. directly to Amber Garza.

There will also be a raffle and vendor pop-up shops. 

In March, three of Garza's children were involved in a deadly crash on Highway 43 in Wasco. Kaleb Garza, 19, and Madysyn Garza, 14, were killed. Her 17-year-old son, Ethan, survived the crash and has since been recovering. 

Fuego's Taco Shack and Grill is located at 12641 Rosedale Highway.
