Support the Fodness Family

This Go Fund Me Account is being set up for the family of Mike and Chris Fodness who experienced a day they will never forget. Around 10:30am on December 2, 2016, the Copper Lounge building collapsed. The Fodness family lived in the loft above Copper Lounge and their daughter, Emily, was home at the time of the collapse.  Emily and her dog, Nova, were rescued after being trapped for over 3 hours beneath the debris. Rescue workers worked carefully and diligently to make sure she was removed safely! They have also located one of the family's Beagles, and are continuing to search for the other family pet.  Please pray! 

Due to this tragic event, the Fodness family needs our support to rebuild their lives as they have lost most of their belongings. The place they once called home is now gone.  Please consider donating to this amazing family, as they are the type of people that would give you the last shirt off their back. Now it is time for the Sioux Falls community to give back! 

This account has been set up by David and Rebecca Ohayon who are good friends of the family. We ensure all monies raised will go to the family, and we thank you in advance for your support! The fact that Emily was found alive truly is a Christmas miracle. Praise GOD!
