Happy Birthday, Sophie

Today would have been Sophie’s 24th birthday. Here’s a photo of Sophie on her 18th birthday, a newly minted Cornell freshman outside her Risley Hall dorm.

This is an occasion for us to thank the nearly 100 people who have made generous donations to The Sophie Fund. We have spent the past few months meeting local mental health care providers and organizations to learn about their programs. The Sophie Fund looks forward to working closely with all of them and supporting initiatives aiding young people in the greater Ithaca community.

We’d also like to thank the Community Foundation of Tompkins County for its invaluable support for The Sophie Fund.

If you happen to be dining today at any of Sophie’s favorite eateries in Ithaca (that’s just about all of them!) raise a glass to her.
