It was the most heartbreaking news any of us could hear the week leading into Father's Day: a 16-year-old hit by a car and killed on 787's Bridge Street intersection in Cohoes. With tragedy a community rallies and you can help Brittany Knight's family.

A big "thank you" to Rebekah Shellard-Dessingue‎ who reached out via Facebook to let me know about this event that is coming up on Sunday to support the funeral costs and services for the Knight family. The last thing anyone ever wants to do is have to bury their child and my heart goes out to them, as do many in the Capital Region. Below is the information on how you can help support them with an event at the House of Angels in Cohoes.
