SYRACUSE (WSYR-TV) – A celebration and fundraiser in memory of Corey Hill will be held Saturday in Syracuse. Hill was shot and killed last month inside a home on Steuben Street.
 
Today, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., friends of Hill are hosting a special event at Benjamin’s on Franklin in Armory Square.
 
Money raised will benefit the Corey Hill Scholarship Fund.
 
Students who are eventually awarded scholarships through the fund will need to meet certain criteria.
 
“Somebody who is loyal. Somebody who is very well grounded in what they do. Somebody who gives back to their community at the same time. Just all the qualities that Corey exemplified and we just want to make sure that whoever receives this scholarship is the perfect example of that spirit,” said Hill’s close friend Lennie DiFino.
