Family members of a slain Tulsa teenager continue their efforts to raise money for a reward leading to the capture of her killer.

Kayla Ferrante was killed as her boyfriend drove her home shortly after her graduation from Memorial High School. They were a few yards from her home when someone fired a shot at the car.

A bullet traveled through the license plate, trunk, the passenger's seat and exited the front windshield after striking Kayla in the chest.

There are two upcoming events scheduled so the public can help Kayla's family find justice.

Swain Brothers Racing is holding a bike and car show from 4 to 8 p.m. Saturday, July 28, at 7743 E 38th Street H in Tulsa to raise money for a reward leading to the capture of her killer.

All cars and bikes are welcome to enter, and there will also be many show bikes and cars on display. Prizes will be given.
