Ilana needs our help!

Ilana needs us!

Please join our efforts to help raise funds for 19 year old Ilana. She tragically lost her Mother on Wednesday, August  23rd. Ilana will need funds to pay for the service, living expenses, and starting her life without her best friend and Mother to guide and support her as she ventures out in to the world. 

Ilana is a graduate of FPC and works at Skip's in Daytona and the Florida Agricultural Museum as an equestrian trail guide. I have known her since she was 11 years old as her 4-H leader. She is an avid horsewoman and loves all animals (She has 2 dogs, 4 cats, and a bunch of fish to care for now!) She has worked hard for everything she has and I have come to depend on her as an employee and a friend.  She is deserving and in need of our emotional and financial support during this most difficult time in her life.

She is incredibly grateful for the support and generosity being offered and I am honored to request these funds on her behalf. I hope to meet and exceed our goal.
