‘Ride to Francis’ a success!

The final tally is in!
Dave Christi
The Memorial Day “Ride to Francis” raised $4,198.80 for the Kansas City VA Medical Center’s Voluntary Services Unit. These funds will be used to assist homeless veterans in the Kansas City region. With administrative overhead covered by the Veteran’s Administration, donors are assured that 100 percent of their funds will be used for goods and services to assist veterans in need.

The “Ride to Francis” was the brainchild of Francis’s godfather Dave Christi, who rode his Harley from New York to Leavenworth National Cemetery in support of the KCVA. On a soggy Memorial Day morning, his journey culminated when he laid a wreath at Francis’s grave.

Thanks to Dave, donations to the KCVA in Francis’s memory have reached nearly $21,000.
