BENEFITING: CORNELL UNIVERSITY
May 13 will be 8 months since we lost my mom to a tragic heart attack. In May we will celebrate both her birthday pn May 2nd and Mother's Day and I wanted to do something special for her. I am setting a goal to raise $620 since she would be turning 62 this year. All funds raised will benefit the Liz Padilla Scholarship Fund at Cornell Law School to assist students who go into public service law pay off their loans. You must put Liz Padilla Fund/In Memory of Sharon Silvestri in the Comments field when donating.
Liz was my best friend who also passed away tragically in a cycling accident. My mom was my rock when we lost Liz--she loved her dearly as well. I know my mom would be honored to be celebrated right alongside Liz--another remarkable woman taken too soon. Together their legacy can continue through the public service work of the students who are awarded the Liz Padilla Scholarship.
Thank you for all of your love and support over the last 8 months and for giving to this cause that is so close to my heart. Hug your loved ones!
