OAKLAND -- A fundraiser for two men who drowned during a fishing trip Saturday in the Delta near Stockton will be held 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday at Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church, 1136 34th St., in West Oakland.
The victims, Acemoore Pittman, 41, of Oakland, and Johnny Johnson II, 37, of Hayward, had 17 children between them.
They drowned after their boat capsized. Another man with them survived.
Some of the donations will come from the sale of food and clothing items at the church. People can also make a cash donation in person or mail a donation to the church.
The fundraiser is being sponsored by the More Foundation, a victims advocacy group, whose founder, Carol Ferguson Jones, grew up with Pittman.
