Duarte Family Support Campaign

On behalf of the UC Irvine baseball community, this donation campaign has been created to help support a teammate and friend, Mikey Duarte, as well as his family. Mikey's younger sister, Christiana Duarte, and Mikey's girlfriend, Ariel Romero, were both attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas on Sunday when the shooting occurred. Ariel suffered a significant injury to her jaw, and has been in and out of surgery. Christiana tragically passed away as a result of her injuries. Please send your thoughts and prayers to the families of Ariel and Christiana.

The purpose of this campaign is to raise as much money as possible for the Duarte and Romero families in this time of need. The funds are intended to provide support in any way that the families see fit. As there will likely be medical bills and future expenses related to this incident, any and all donations are greatly appreciated.

In an effort to maximize donations to this campaign, I ask that you please share this campaign with your family and friends. Let's all come together to do as much as we can to help out these two incredible families.

Thank you for your time, thought, and support.
