Valley residents are doing their part to honor the victims killed during the Las Vegas shooting earlier this week.

On Friday, the Las Vegas Tragedy Candlelight Vigil will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza in Phoenix. 

Multiple guest speakers are slated to attend and there will also be a candle lighting, a slideshow of the victims and moment of silence. 

Candles will be on-hand for attendees but people are welcome to bring their own. People are also encouraged to bring chairs.

On Saturday, residents in Chandler will be holding their own their own memorial for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting.

A benefit concert is being held at Tom Ryan’s from noon to 7 p.m. 

Organizers Hayley Boult and her boyfriend, Joel Maze, were attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival with friends when 58 people were killed and nearly 500 people are injured.

The event will feature local country musicians, food trucks, raffles, and a silent auction to raise money for the Las Vegas Victim’s Fund.
