Kindness Makes Miracles
The Knights of Columbus helped one of their own, as the third annual "Kindness Makes Miracles" took place at the Knights of Columbus hall.
Carl O'Loughlin, whose daughter was a victim of bullying and later died in a car accident, came up with the fundraiser to honor her memory. O'Loughlin says every, year when the event comes around, he and his wife revisit memories that remind them of their daughter. He says sharing the program with local teens helps them learn how to stop bullying before it starts.
"Well its actually a two part thing. It's anti bullying and kindness. They don't necessarily go hand in hand. A kid could not be involved in bullying but they still may not be as nice as they could be. So we want them to start thinking about being nice to their fellow students parents. Stand up for kids being bullied," says O'Loughlin.
At Tuesday night's event, 43 kids participated in a art gallery where names were drawn at random for electronic prizes.
