On Sunday night (August 24th), a group of people in Peterborough did something beautiful. Friends and family of the late Tara Dawn Jacobs—who passed away suddenly and far too young last Monday—got together in a celebration of life for her. Hosted at Spanky’s on Hunter Street, her friends and family rallied together to help raise money for Tara’s two young daughters, Janelle and Jazlyn. Spanky's had a BBQ, raffle table and a silent auction, and have so far raised almost $7,000. To cap off the night, they celebrated with a paper lantern send-off on Hunter St. which was incredible to witness as you can see in the pictures and video below. Those who helped organize the event were truly in awe and inspired by the sense of love and community they felt. If you are interested in donating, email Meg Fitzpatrick here for info.
