Stuart Parsons Community Fundraiser for Brittany Stevenson’s Family a Major Success

WACO -The Central Texas community is rallying behind the family of a young mother who died in a tragic accident by raising thousands of dollars in her honor.

People had previously come together to help search for Brittany Stevenson, but they gathered again Sunday to raise more than $14,000. All proceeds from Sunday’s fundraiser will go to Stevenson’s two young sons.

Throughout the day, more than a hundred people turned out to the BSR Cable Parkin Waco to raise money in honor of Stevenson.

BSR said they would donate one dollar for every lap completed in the freeze out. Several wake boarders spent hours in the cold water and completed 300 hundred laps for the cause.

BSR and Parsons Roofing President Stuart Parsons says he wanted to do whatever he could to help.Stuart Parsons

“I didn’t know Brittany personally, but I could feel that she was a good person. She had two little boys,” says Parsons. “She had a lot of friends and a really strong family. But what’s really nice to see is our community really pulls together on different things like this.”

Parsons also promised an additional donation based on the sales made at the bar and grill upstairs.

“The deal was that we would double it if the Cowboys lost and we triple it if the Cowboys won,” says Parsons. “Well, since the Cowboys got stiffed on a few calls I think we’re still going to triple it.”

And as if that wasn’t enough, the fundraiser also included a bake sale and a silent auction of donated items, like Taylor Swift concert tickets and box seats to Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars games.

Parsons says the fundraiser was definitely a success and that the day was all about turning a negative into a positive.
