  A Christmas in July Hog Roast benefit in memory of Lynn Jackenheimer was held this past weekend in Ashland.

  Jackenheimer was the 33-year-old Ashland woman whose slain body was found a year ago in the Outer Banks of North Carolina where she was vacationing.

  Lynn's mother, Lora Johnson, says the Christmas in July theme was used because her daughter was a giving person and would try to help others who might be struggling.

  Proceeds from the benefit are earmarked for the Ashland Police Department's Shop with a Cop program, Rape Crisis Domestic Violence Safe Haven, the Outer Banks Hotline and Lynn's Angel Trees.

  Lynn's Angel Trees was started by Jackenheimer's family and was funded by reward money donated by the man who found her body.
