CARENCRO — A fundraiser was held on Saturday for one of the missing Seacor crew members that left behind three kids.

The family of Chaz Morales held an event at New Orleans Daiquiris in Carencro.

Those who attended enjoyed raffles, music, and daiquiris.

Samantha Wixom, Morales' cousin, told KATC, "This party is a fundraiser for my cousin, Chaz Morales, he is one of the seven men missing from the Seacor tragedy that happened April 13th, seven months today. This is a fundraiser for his kids to help keep them supported because he was the sole provider for his children. They are now in his mother's custody, and this is something that we are doing, and Christmas is around the corner. He left behind three children."
