THE STORY:

We are sponsoring an open fundraiser for friends to help raise money to purchase a Tribute Bench from Longwood University in honor of our wonderful ZTA sister and friend, Cary Brooks Sears ('78). Cary died on April 17, 2014 while suffering for four and a half months from small cell lung cancer. Our hope is to have our bench purchased and installed during the newly renovated Stubbs' Open House on Saturday, October 18th, 2014. We will schedule a special dedication ceremony after consulting with Cary's family about timing.

The black metal benches have brass plaques that contain fairly standard wording (see photos). They are usually placed on Brock Commons but we are going to convince them to place ours closer to the Chapter Room (in Stubbs) where Cary's sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha is housed. While Longwood will benefit from the money we raise, it will be nice for all of us to know we contributed to a permanent memory for someone with deep roots both at Longwood and in our hearts. 

Many, many thanks for your support!

Love,

Donna & Betsy
