Joe Ramaikas Memorial Expenses
Organized by: Elizabeth Sarkisian
We did it!
July 11, 2016
UPDATE: The outpouring of support for Joe Ramaikas' family after his untimely passing time has been enormous, and so many people near and far have asked how they can help. This fundraiser was set up specifically for anyone to make smaller donations to help out with the immediate expenses. The money raised here will go towards the cost of food, beverages, flowers, programs, and other specific expenses associated with Friday's memorial. We saw this as an opportunity for lots of people to come together in a small way, with an immediate and large impact on his family. Any funds raised in addition to what is needed for the memorial will be deposited into Hank's Educational Fund.
Now that we have reached our goal and beyond, if you would still like to make a donation in Joe's honor please consider one of the 3 options listed below:
