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, on Thursday, April 4 at 9:30 am, andThe Broken Egg Sarasota, 4031 Clark Rd., at 11:30am. The press and the public are invited to attend and are encouraged to wear blue jeans and green shirts, in honor Lexi’s favorite attire.
"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. Lexi loved volunteering at Nate’s and was always a happy and enthusiastic volunteer. The Lexi’s Paw Pals program at Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue is designed to allow children to work with and socialize with dogs and cats at the shelter.
"Everything reminds me of her. I just think of all the good things she brought to our growing family," said Lexi's step-sister, Hope Lowe.
“My little girl Lexi was given an amazing gift of unconditional love and compassion for everyone & everything; I miss her so much! Lexi would be so proud of Nate’s Honor Animal Rescue for giving other children a way to nurture their passion for animals and The Broken Egg for their gracious support of Lexi’s Paw Pals, as well as our family – thank you!” added Lexi’s mother Nikki Lowe.
