The annual Remembrance Cabaret for 2006 Westfield High grad and Virginia Tech victim Reema Samaha was June 15 at Westfield. Several VT students and Westfield grads performed.

Through donations, the event raised $10,637 for Angel Fund, a nonprofit founded by the Samaha family to create safer schools and communities by focusing on mental-health issues, privacy laws and information sharing. Attendees also contributed $2,107 to the Reema J. Samaha Memorial Scholarship Fund.
