#GoGold and #DoMore with us for Layla’s Legacy
Now through the end of October, we will be raising awareness and funds for Layla’s Legacy – a foundation created from the love of a daughter who had a short but very impactful life.
We started this push with a photo booth sponsorship for their Gold Gala. We’ve got posts on our Facebook page for awareness and funds, and every single dollar that comes in through the trial (http://member-site.net/?PT–ghiwJ) will go right back to Layla’s foundation.
How can you help?
Please share this post on Facebook to help spread awareness:
