Brandon Dorns & Abanoub Zaki Fund

On August 31st our friends Brandon Dorns & Abanoub Zaki were involved in a single car accident on I-64 East. Brandon passed away at the scene and Abanoub remains hospitalized.

The emotional damage this has caused is indescribable, but the financial weight of a funeral and hospital bills is especially distressing. We encourage the friends of Brandon and Abanoub to donate in support of the Dorns and Zaki families. 

45% of the funds will be donated to the Dorns family to help with Brandon's Funeral

45% of the funds will be donated to the Zaki family to support them with Abanoub's medical bills

10% of the funds will be used to establish the Brandon Dorns Memorial Scholarship 

***If you would like 100% of your donation to go to the Brandon Dorns Scholarship then please leave the comment “Scholarship” with your donation.***

In trying times like these, any amount of support helps.
