CFLR, ACR Health support memorial scholarship fund

Photo: The Center for Family Life and Recovery, Inc., in collaboration with ACR Health, recently held the inaugural Light of Hope ceremony. All proceeds from the event — $1,500 — were presented to the Connor Arthur Lynskey Memorial Scholarship Fund. A drunk driver tragically took Lynskey’s life in 2018. “Addiction is a disease and many of the deaths attributed to this disease can be prevented. CFLR chose to contribute to Connor’s legacy in hopes young people receiving scholarships will work to prevent such tragic loss and provide hope,” said Cassandra Sheets, CEO of CFLR. Taking part in the check presentation are, from left, Alisa Ferraro, CFLR advocacy coordinator; Sheets; Donald Lynskey, race director for Connor’s Way Scenic Memorial 5-Mile Run/Walk; Jodi Warren, CFLR prevention director; and Ambi Daniel, CFLR family navigator. Bridget Keesler is co-director of Connor’s Way. The CFLR is regarded as the area’s leading expert in prevention services, behavioral and mental health services, as well as community and family recovery services.
