Dahni Jo was 5 years old when her life was tragically cut short.  She was a light in the Evansville area, who had a passion for helping animals.  Dahni was seen at many fundraising events with local rescues sharing her love for animals.  In fact many weekends Dahni spent her time at Petsmart helping with the adoption events, or at Evansville Animal Control handing out treats to the dogs there.  She truly had a huge heart for animals.  A scholarship fund has now been set up in her name, but the Dahni Jo Memorial Scholarship Fund needs the community's help in raising funds to help students in the future.

You can help support the Dahni Jo Memorial Scholarship fund by stopping by the fundraiser on June 5th.  The fundraiser is a plant sale that will take place at Advanced Auto Parts Corner of Morgan and Stockwell from 10 am to 2 pm.  Not only will there be plants for sale, but also pulled pork and chicken breast sandwiches for sale from The Oink as well as hamburgers and hot dogs so you can stop by and grab yourself some lunch too. All proceeds will go back to benefit the Dahni Jo Memorial Scholarship Fund.

There has been a great campaign on social media reminding people to #BeLikeDahni where many in the rescue community are sharing photos of Dahni volunteering, and photos of them helping out in Dahni's name.  It's been great to see the community come together after this tragic loss to raise up Dahni's name and do good in her honor.

Follow along with the Dahni Jo Memorial Scholarship Facebook page to keep up to date with fundraising events. #BeLikeDahni
