The Kristy Lynn Berkelbaugh Memorial Fund was created by Diana and Fred Berkelbaugh to honor their daughter who passed away tragically at a very young age. The family has proudly been supporting programs and services for children for years with the use of this fund. Through years of community collaboration, family advocating and close circle of friends, the fund has provided hundreds of opportunities to make impactful changes. 

In honor of Kristy Lynn, The Kristy Lynn Berkelbaugh Child Advocate Award was created. The award is presented to a citizen who has been an extraordinary example of child advocacy. The first recipient of this award was the Terbracks, a two-generation foster family whose legacy of love began with their mother, Marguerite Terbrack, who was a foster parent for more than 30 years. 

Nominations will end on March 31, 2020. Award will be presented on May 9, 2020 at the Tux & Tennies Auction and Gala.
