Fundraiser set for Lexi's Paw Pals
LAKEWOOD RANCH -- The Broken Egg Restaurants are throwing a birthday party in honor of Lexi Brown 7:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. Thursday . Ten percent of sales at all Broken Egg Restaurants will go to Nate's Honor Animal Rescue.
Lexi was the 10-year-old, Parish girl who was killed in January. Her favorite charity was Nate's Honor Animal Rescue because she loved animals. She spent many hours caring for the dogs and cats there. Nate's will bring their Smooch-A-Pooch Booth to The Broken Egg Breakfast and Lunch Restaurant in Lakewood Ranch and Sarasota.
Nate's Honor Animal Rescue will be at The Broken Egg Lakewood Ranch, 6115 Exchange Way, at 9:30 a.m., and The Broken Egg Sarasota, 4031 Clark Road., at 11:30 a.m.
"Lexi Brown was an inspiration to our organization. Her passion for saving animals made us realize we needed to have a way to engage all of the children like her in our community, and nurture that passion. We are very lucky to have such a great community partner like The Broken Egg to help us celebrate her life and promote the Lexi's Paw Pals program in her memory," said Nate's Honor Animal Rescue's Director of Operations Karissa Mayer, CVT
Alexandra "Lexi" Brown was murdered in Ohio while on a trip with her father. She and her mother lived in Parrish, and Lexi attended Gene Witt Elementary School.
