A benefit for a scholarship in the name of Burnsville High School student Taylor Ziebol, who died in a car crash that also injured her brother Adam and sister Shannon, will be held Aug. 9 at North River Hills Park in Burnsville.

The Ziebol-Hess family is still healing, according to family friend Nicole Jeziorski.

Adam has had multiple surgeries over the past 13 months and had his final one just over a month ago. He still has healing to do, Jeziorski wrote in an email.

Shannon has healed physically, but they all still have healing to do with Taylor being gone, Jeziorski wrote.

Last year a benefit soccer game in honor of Taylor Ziebol raised nearly $9,000. From this money, $2,000 went to two $1,000 scholarships for two girls who were graduating from Burnsville High School and involved in the AVID program that Taylor volunteered with.

For Saturday’s event, a pick-up soccer game will start at 5 p.m. with a picnic at 6 p.m. and short program and entertainment at 7 p.m.

Anyone interested in playing in the game should bring a black and a white T-shirt along with cleats, shin guards and a ball.

Food will be served 6-7 p.m. The cost will be $10 per person for a choice of hot dog or hamburger, a side, choice of beverage, and dessert. All money raised will go toward a scholarship in Taylor Ziebol’s name.

Entertainment throughout the night will include lawn games, music, a raffle and more.

Those who want to donate but are unable to attend can send checks to “BHS-Taylor Ziebol” to Burnsville High School, 600 Highway 13, Burnsville, MN 55337.
