Fundraiser and celebration for Couch Street fire victim planned

Festivities to celebrate Alexa Limato

— Attendance is limited to people who are at least 21-years-old.

The event theme will illustrate Limato’s free spirit and playful nature.

“The main thing we are going to do is make beaded bracelets, anyone who knows Alexa knows shes wears at least 10 a day,” said Limato’s friend and one of the event organizers, Laura Colon.

Colon said she and Limato went to high school together. Colon said the Highland Mills girl is currently earning her degree at Plattsburgh State University in psychology.

“She’s always been very dedicated to everything she does,” Colon said. “She’s a very free spirit and fun girl, she loves to hula hoop and is always bringing that downtown.”

Limato is being treated at a hospital burn unit in Syracuse. Limato was one of 11 who were displaced due to the fire. Colon said at this time the family doesn’t wish to make a comment on Limato’s condition.

“We would love for everyone to come out and support Alexa in her time of need, and if you can’t go you can still show support for Alexa by sending her family a check,” Colon said. “We’d love to see a large crowd or students, community members, friends, everybody can be there and celebrate Alexa.”

To make a donation go to the Green Room or visit http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-alexa-heal/90054. People are asked to make checks payable to Susan Limato.
