Laurie Manny shared so much with so many as you've probably seen via the various tributes her friends shared. In lieu of flowers several of our AR friends have taken the initiative to set up a Laurie Manny Memorial fund Here's more about it...
Many of Laurie's friends have been chatting and realized that if we all sent flowers to her service in New York or to her Memorial Gathering in Long Beach there wouldn't be much room for people. We have set up a Laurie Manny Memorial Fund for those who would like to make a donation. I know there will be tons of flowers at her services in New York and we will be providing flowers in Long Beach so we thought that perhaps her friends might like to donate to a fund that will go to her family. Your donation will not be tax deductible as you are sending a gift to a friend.
We had thought we would be able to set it up with a national bank but the paperwork was more then seemed necessary. Marlene Bridges is at her home in Palm Springs this week and was kind enough to inquire at a local bank and set up the account there.
Make Checks Payable to: Laurie Manny Memorial Fund

We plan to close the account on October 1 and distribute the money to the family at that time. We will also have a place where you can make a donation at the Memorial Gathering in Long Beach for those who will be there.
