Fundraiser underway for Fayetteville Officer Stephen Carr memorial



FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — A fundraiser to help support a memorial for fallen Fayetteville Officer Stephen Carr is underway.

If your ticket is selected, you will win the basket you bid on.

Winners for the baskets will be announced on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 (also known as Officer Stephen Carr #413 Day, with 413 representing his badge number).
