University of Delaware college students joined hands last week at the BBC Tavern and Grill in support of Lori’s Hands, which connects energetic college students with people in Delaware who are chronically ill. Lori’s Hands is a student-volunteer caregiver organization named in memory of a woman who lost her battle to breast cancer in 2003. Her daughter founded the organization in 2009 when she was a student at the University of Delaware. Guest bartenders at the January 22nd event included Jeff Garland, James Brennan, Frank DeSantis, Jane Gibson, Linda Hanna, Ashley Lewis and others. Funds raised will support the infrastructure needed to help replicate the Lori’s Hands model on other college campuses.
