Traci Brammer, a longtime friend, employee of the Town of Winter Park, avid softball player, wife, mother and all around great individual, passed away on March 9, 2014 after a long battle with cancer.

Before she passed she asked us, her friends, if we could make sure we support other locals suffering from this dreadful disease. In the spirit of Traci’s lust for life, we created a fund in memory of Traci and her courageous fight. We look to aid others with similar afflictions through his Fund.
