Kinley's Memorial Bench for SOAR

$2,760 of $2,700 goal

Raised by 63 people in 16 months
UPDATE: Kinley's family has decided what her plaque will read: "Too fond of the stars to fear the night. Forever Kinley Inich"

To honor the memory of Kinley, I am raising funds to purchase a bench and have it placed near SOAR High School.  This bench would be a permanent fixture of the college and would be there for many generations to come and enjoy.  Her mother, Beckie has already expressed how much this bench would mean to her and her family, "It's going to be amazing. I will have to go over just to sit on it from time-to-time."

Kinley loved attending SOAR and had plans on becoming a doctor and medical examiner.  Having this bench placed near SOAR High School seems like the most fitting choice.  This bench will be a place her family, friends, and classmates can visit and honor her memory for many years to come.

ABOUT KINLEY:
Kinley was a bright, beautiful girl with an amazing future in front of her. She had wanted to be a medical examiner one day. To achieve that goal she graduated from SOAR High School and was taking part in an EMT program at a different local high school. She was accepted and intended to attend Oregon State University in the fall.

Kinley was the epitome of strength and fought cancer on her terms. She was diagnosed initially in January of 2011 and quickly obtained remission. She remained cancer free until April 25, 2017.

On May 21, 2017, at 17 years old she left this earth. She is survived by her Mother and Stepdad, Rebecca and James Bonifassi, father Tom Inich, her Brother Tiernan Inich, Grandparents Vilma and Jaime Bonifassi, as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE GOAL IS REACHED: Once enough funds are raised, the AVC Foundation will work with Beckie in ordering and installing the bench.  All donors will be invited to the revealing of the bench with Kinley's family.

HANDLING OF DONATIONS:  These funds will be donated to the AVC Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and each donor can receive credit for their contribution.  To get an end of the year tax letter, send your name and address directly to the organizer, Lisa O'Leary.
