A lake area family is hoping to use their story to save someone’s life. Cassandra Pitts took her own life in 2014. Her family now holds an annual fundraiser at Little Niangua Campground to generate funds for suicide awareness and prevention.
That’s Cassandra’s sister, Erin Morales. In addition to the fundraiser, the family has also established the “Cassandra’s Rose Memorial Foundation,” and Morales has volunteered to speak to schools or other groups interested in the topic. The BBQ fundraiser will be held September 7th. For more information, call 417-296-2273.
