It was a special day to support Southwest County’s Loren Wright in her fight with cancer. On Saturday, May 18 in the parking lot of Penn Forest Worship Center, Loren’s friends held a fundraiser to help take some financial pressure off of Loren and her husband. You can read more about Loren and her fight with cancer here. “Knowing that people are out there and they care… knowing that you have the community support makes a big difference,” said Loren. The fundraiser organized by Lisa Carleno, Stacey Beard and Kellie Mirasola was a big success and featured a Silent Auction, Zumba class, car wash, various vendors, hair chalking and mini mani’s from the CSHS Cheerleaders, as well as lawn games and face painting.
Loren Wright, along with her husband Craig and son Aidan, sat in a rocking chair outside and enjoyed speaking to everyone who came to support her. She said when she first arrived and everything was being set up, she had tears streaming down her face… “I was very emotional,” she said. Seeing all the love and support from those around her in the community overwhelmed her. Loren quickly recovered and in her usual happy manner embraced those who came to see her. And of course, in true Loren fashion she pulled out her camera and started snapping pictures of the memorable day. You can see Loren’s beautiful pictures here.
