The family of Carly Ferro, the teen killed in a bizarre crash in Rutland last week, established a foundation honoring the teen and her passion for golf.

Donations to the Purple Angel Foundation can be made at any branch of the Merchants Bank. Purple was Carly's favorite color.

The family says part of the money will go toward one college golf scholarship for a teen girl, and the remainder will be available for the family to disperse at their discretion.

The Ferro family also released a statement saying, "What is most important to us is that this has grown bigger than our family because people truly want good to win over evil. Carly so epitomized goodness, kindness, and love that people feel compelled to want to do something so that good can be stronger here -- and not to have anger, and hatred and drug abuse win over the goodness and the kindness that we all have in us. That's what her gift was, is that she always saw the good, the laughter, the joy, in every situation. So what we most want is the tipping point to be toward love, positive healing, and good deeds. To help the community to rise away from any negativity and that's what's most important to us."

Donations can be made at any branch of the Merchants Bank. These are the addresses of two branches in Rutland:

The Merchants Bank
Rutland-Green Mtn Plaza Br
286 Route 7, South
Rutland, VT 5701

92 Woodstock Ave
