Robards Family Surprise Trip

Most of you probably have heard the news that Sara Robards passed away on Wednesday, January 24th.  The Robards family is near and dear to my heart and her daughter, Samantha, is one of my best friends.  

Samantha's birthday is coming up in February and I started the idea with surprising her with a Southwest gift card for her to use to fly to Colorado.  She has mentioned numerous times how much she misses the mountains and the friends she has made out there. She was supposed to go a few weeks ago, but due to unfortunate circumstances she decided to cancel the trip.   I decided I wanted to take things little further.

I originally was going to buy her a ticket, but I knew how much Sara would love to see her entire family spend the time together.  This may seem crazy, but I want to raise enough money for their entire family for plane tickets.  I want the Robard’s family to spend time together in one of their favorite places in the world,  celebrating the life of their mother and wife.

In order to do this I am going to need some help.  My goal is to raise $2,500 towards their dream Colorado trip.  Any leftover funds will go towards other expenses for the trip.  Any donation will make a difference.   If you have any questions you can message me on facebook or text.

You all are loved,
