Following the appearance of hit-and-run suspect Claudia Cabrera in court yesterday--she pleaded not guilty--the family of Adriana Bachan announced two memorial services, one in Los Angeles. Tonight's 7 p.m. service will be held at St. Anthony’s Croatian Catholic Church on 712 Grand Avenue. Tomorrow at 1 p.m., a service in Bachan's home town Santa Barbara will be held in Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish at 1300 East Valley Road.

Bachan and her friend Marcus Garfinkle were walking across Jefferson at Hoover on their way home from a frat party on March 29th when they were struck by a driver who ran a red light. Garfinkle remains in the hospital and the passenger in the car, who got out of the vehicle to remove him from the front hood, is still at large.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those interested consider donations to the Adrianna Bachan Fund:
