Forks Twp, PA
Old friends and new met for a great cause this weekend for a Zumba fundraiser at Miss Karen’s Dance Studio on 1700 Sullivan Trail, Easton PA. Karen Riehl, owner and operator of the studio and Brandi Starke-Donnelly, Vice President of the Henry William Donnelly Memorial Scholarship Fund organized the event to raise money to help local students afford college costs.
Over twenty-five boys and girls ranging from ages 2-12 participated in the event and had a great time under the direction an outstanding Zumba instructor. Parents donated money for Zumba, purchased baked goods made by friends and family, and bought raffle tickets that included the chance to win Madison Avenue Soaps products, HWD merchandise, a custom “Henry Bear” and a 50/50.
Through everyone’s generosity, the scholarship fund took in over $600 in just a two hour span! “The loss of our son continues to be more and more difficult to bear,” said Henry’s mother Brandi. “However, all of the support we have received from family and friends have helped us in our goal of keeping Henry’s light shining.”
