Kentucky Flood Fundraiser

Join us in helping the people of Southeastern Kentucky recover from the historic flood in which 26 people lost their lives and countless others lost their homes and belongings. I personally know one of those people. My cousin, her husband, their two sons 11 and 16, and their dog luckily survived with their car, her purse, and his wallet. It was all they had time to grab. Their home and belongings were lost in the flash flood which happened very quick. Thank goodness they stayed awake that night. The flash flood enveloped their home in moments. They rushed to their car in three feet of muddy, surging water. Before long their home was submerged within three feet of the roofline. After hearing their story and many others I knew I had to do something to help. I may have worked professionally for much of my life in Los Angeles, but I grew up in Southeastern Kentucky and that early connection to the mountains and the people there never goes away. I have been a part of many fundraisers but I have never formed one myself. I wish to extend a huge thank you to each and every person who is helping with this fundraiser. And I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to each and every person who donates to this important cause. The people of Southeastern Kentucky thank you.
