Clarkston area resident Jesse Moyet, owner and founder of Detroit, Orion Love, and most recent Clarkston Love apparel is spreading the "love" to help Lake Orion family Joe and Kristi (Clark) Schons, who recently lost their child.

Moyet, a Lake Orion native who graduated with Kristi, said a fundraiser will be held May 14 at Elements located at 11 S.Broadway in downtown Lake Orion.

"It's a bunch of people who's still in touch with them, getting together," he said. "I don't know all the details, but I know enough where they need the help."

Fifty percent of the total sales from all "Orion Love" products (shirts, hats, and tank tops) will go toward the medical and funeral expenses of the Schons family. Any online sales that day will also be included.

"Lake Orion is having their reunion June 25 and I believe we're also going to take that night and all those sales are also going to go towards the family," Moyet said.

Lake Orion alumni Jennifer Drabant Scheidt also offered to donate 80 percent from all online Silpada Jewelry sales the entire month of May to the Orion Love Fund raiser.

"There is no better way to help then to do something like this," Moyet said.
