Memorial for Richard White VI

I am raising money for a bench dedication for Rich at Chalet Woods Park. This park is home to countless  memories myself and our friends have of Rich. I cannot think of a better place to remember the magnificent friend and  person he was than at Chalet Woods. It was our spot.

A dedication for a park bench is not cheap. Of course I will be paying my part, but I cannot do it alone. It costs $800 for an already existing bench or $2500 for a new one. My goal is to raise money for the former, but if we are able to raise the money for a new bench altogether that would be even better. I have raised the goal to 2800, due to the service charges of gofundme. They take out about 8% plus 30 cents per donation. All excess donations will be given to Lost Dog and Rescue in Rich's name.

Rich has had an insurmountable impact on my life and many others.  A dedication at this park would mean a great deal to Rich's family and friends, and it would ensure his legacy lives on at a place that meant so much to him.  If you are able, please donate whatever you can.
