DB Congress Reps Have Big Hearts

A few months ago, we lost one of our dear friends and fellow DB Congress representatives from Kentucky. Larissa died January 12, 2011 after a tragic accident in her wheelchair.

On behalf of the DB Congress, we sent flowers for the funeral and collected donations for the Spina Bifida Association and BRAWA (Barren River Animal Welfare Association), the animal shelter for Glasgow, KY in Larissa's name.

To say the members of the DBC were generous is an understatement.  They poured out their hearts and we were able to not only send a beautiful, red, white and blue large floral arrangement, but we also raised $100 for EACH charity! 

We miss you, Larissa!


This email is a confirmation that your online entry at the site of Barren River Animal Welfare Assn. was received. The following information was recorded:

Amount: $100.00
