Students from Spierer's former high school threw a fundraiser last night that included musical performances, a magic show and a fashion show. Organizers say, per the family's request, all of the proceeds will go toward SADD, Students Against Destructive Decisions. "We've missed her in the community, and I have the greatest respect for everyone who's been looking for her. I wanted to be part of this community who will help," says organizer Julia Haber.

Spierer, 20, was attending Indiana University when she went missing on campus after a night out drinking with friends in 2011.
