Club members are holding the fundraiser at the Jump Jump Party Supplies & Rental store located in the Kmart Plaza, 815 S. Bluff Street, from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. All proceeds will go to Lenae’s husband, Derrick Smith, a Desert Hills High School teacher, and the couple’s four children.
Lenae Smith, 36 of St. George, was riding an ATV near Navajo Drive, west of Bloomington, when a call came in to the St. George Police Department about a woman who had crashed on her four wheeler.
CPR was being performed when St. George Police arrived on scene. Medical personnel from Gold Cross Ambulance and Life Flight took over once once they arrived and continued to perform CPR. Despite all life-saving efforts, Lenae Smith died about 40 minutes after the crash.
