ColorTyme franchisee contributes to FAPA raffle

Richard Pannell donates laptop to Foster Adoptive Parent Association

August 31, 2010 // // DESTIN, Fla. – Bringing together adoptive families, caregivers and members from across the panhandle, the Foster Adoptive Parent Association recently concluded its annual conference in Destin, Fla. ColorTyme Franchisee Richard Pannell showed his support for the organization by donating a laptop computer for the event's raffle giveaway.

"The Foster Adoptive Parent Association encourages parents to be there for their kids," said Pannell. "The organization's commitment to children, their safety and well-being truly inspires me, so I'm happy to help in any way I can."

The 2010 conference gathered regional FAPA associations from three circuits that comprise the North West Foster Adoptive Parent Association. Together, these groups strengthen foster and adoptive families through support, training and advocacy.

Curtis Byrd, president of the North Okaloosa Walton Foster Adoptive Parent Association, was pleased with the conference turnout and grateful for Pannell's donation.

"This is the third year that we've held the conference, and our meeting was a huge success," said Byrd. "I think everyone had fun with the raffle, and it brought in extra funds for our mission. Donations like Mr. Pannell's make it possible for us to continue our work and give back to those who support us."

The winner of the donated laptop was Kimberly Hernandez, president of the Florida State Foster Adoptive Parent Association.
