Clearfield, Clearfield County, Pa. - As the investigation into Chase Anderson's death continues, the Clearfield County community is rallying around his family with a benefit to help with funeral costs.

Last month, an investigation was underway in Curwensville, as Anderson was missing for more than three weeks. 

A week ago. forensic examiners connected the 19 year-old to human remains found in a woods near Walker Road in Pike Township.   Since then, police have been investigating it as a murder.

The owner of the skating rink, Jeannie Peoples, knows chase's family personally when she heard of the benefit, she knew she had to help. 

"I've known chase ever since he was a little boy and I needed to do something to help the family. And it does make things easier when they see the all the support," says Peoples.

Anderson's family says the donations are a weight lifted off of their shoulders, during this time of tragedy.

"Anyone you talk to will tell you he lights up their life. He had a hug for everyone a smile for everybody, He had a great 19 years and we want to remember those," explains Holly Knoll, Chase's Aunt. 

The family is asking everyone  in attendance on sunday to wear blue, which was Chase's favorite color. 

If you can't make it,  they will be accepting donations, both monetary or baked goods, throughout the weekend at the skating rink.
