Support Chad Lawhorn

Our good friend, Chad Lawhorn, has recently experienced a significant family tragedy.  This past weekend, his brother Casey who had been struggling with mental illness for quite some time took the life of his best friend as well as Chad's mother, Vi, before going on the run and eventually committing suicide. 

Over the next few weeks Chad is facing arranging two funerals, possible legal costs, and dealing with his family's estate in addition to grieving a loss that no one can even imagine.  

With this fundraiser, we hope to help Chad make it through these next few weeks while also giving him the opportunity to grieve in the coming months without additional financial stress.
