Giving Tuesday: Spirit Of Giving Lives On With ‘What Would Bri Do’
SARTELL - BriAnna Kruzel of Sartell had a love for volunteer work, and now a non-profit named in her honor is working hard to keep that passion going.
Tami and Randy Kruzel formed "What Would Bri Do" after their daughter BriAnna passed away unexpectedly in 2013 at the age of 18.
This past December they placed an "Angel Of Hope" in the new Lake Francis Town Square Development in Sartell. Tami says there's still time for you to be a part of that effort.
We have pavers that you can purchase, benches, trees and swings in memory of loved ones. The pavers are $150. You can get any of these items off the Sartell city webpage, if you go to the Angel Of Hope tab.
They will also be awarding scholarships again this spring in honor BriAnna. Tami says her daughter loved to give back to her community, especially with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
We do two scholarships. One is for the Sartell high school, and what they do in the community. And the other one is with Big Brothers Big Sisters, since they gave back and BriAnna loved being a part of that organization we decided to do a $500 scholarship with them also.
If you'd like to help "What Would Bri Do" raise money for these scholarships, you can attend their 4th annual memorial fundraiser on March 11th at The Grands At Mulligans in Sartell.
