Tanner Thompson  PRAGUE, OK


This page has been set up to support the Emily & Hallie Cooper through a tragic time. Emily and Hallie Cooper lost their mother on Tuesday March 4th while preparing animals for the county livestock show the following day. After persevering and showing to honor their mother they were dealt with yet another tragedy as their father passed away in an automobile accident less then 48 hours later. The children are now living with their aunt and any financial support you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

All funds from this will be forwarded to the account set up for the Online Auction set up through OklahomaShowGoats/OklahomaShowPigs ran by Tommy Milligan. Monies will be used for both Hallie and Emily Cooper. Please support this online auction if you have any interest in agricultural products or services.

If you have any checks or cash they can be mailed to the following address:

What a blessing each and every one of you that has contributed to the GoFundMe.com/CooperGirls page, made purchases on the online auction, mailed in cash donations, and those that have been a part of the additional fundraisers outside of our efforts. Your donations will never erase the pain the girls have due to loosing both parents at such a young age but they do remind them that there is a caring world out there who has a vested interest in seeing them succeed in their future.

The local community is hosting a dinner & benefit auction tomorrow, Saturday April 5th, at 6:00 PM. It is my goal to cash out the Go Fund Me account on Monday morning, April 7th, giving everyone the opportunity to contribute who may still wish to after the event. The money that you have contributed through the online auction and Go Fund Me will be combined to create trusts for both Emily and Hallie's futures.

Once again, I just want to thank each of you for your love and support though this time. Here is a sneak peak into what is available at tomorrows benefit!

I am so excited to announce that our goal of $10,000 has been reached!!! This money is going into trusts for Emily & Hallie ensuring that their futures are secure and they will never be limited due to financial reasons.

Since we have reached our goal once it got us thinking can we do it again??? This new goal of $20,000 will continue to be applied towards the girls trusts and provide that much more security for their futures.

Thank you so much to everyone who has liked, shared, donated, and sent words of encouragement.

I saw the post and have a stained glass window I would like to donate. Approx 180.00 value. I tried calling the phone number and got no one. Could someone please contact me. I love in Louisiana and would need to get it in the mail..I could send pics if it doesn't get there in time for the auction but I think it would be best to have it there.
