I have worked with Patti closely over the last 6 years as a Kappa adviser, and she has not only become a mentor to me, but a dear friend. I have regularly traveled from my home in McCall, Idaho to work with the Beta Kappa chapter--Patti traveling from Coeur d'Alene, sometimes weekly, to assisit the chapter for years as Membership Adviser, then House Board President, and now as the House Board Treasurer. Over the years, one thing has become so clear to me, and it is the great love and dedication that Patti and her husband, Butch, have for their family. Their kids and grandkids are the center of their world, and when Patti isn't helping Kappa, she is helping her family.
I have set up this GoFundMe account with Patti as the beneficiary, and have designated that the funds be used however the family sees fit. Hopefully we can help offset some of the travel expenses they may face, or help contribuite to educational opportunities for Sam's children. (If you know the Perry-Ramsay family, you know how paramount education is in their lives.)
Thank you for your support of this incredible family. Beta Kappa would not be where it is today without them, and neither would many of us.
