Midland, TX (Big 2 News) - A fundraiser in support of a young girl who died before her third birthday, brought together people from Midland and Odessa this weekend.

We're told Grace Lillian Ford was killed at her home in Plano.

Reports say Ford had suffocated and suffered brain injuries.

The Ford family is originally from West Texas and this weekend the community came together to hold a benefit washer tournament called Prayers for Gracie.

It's all to help the family with funeral expenses.

"To see just so many community members come together just for this little girl that they've never met but she's touched their lives with her story so it's wonderful," said Gena Seigman, a relative of the family.

Organizers say the turn out was very good with 16 teams taking part in the friendly competition.
