|Locals receive Angel Award|
Staci Raborn of West Monroe and Dana Taylor of Monroe were two of seven Louisiana residents named by Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation as the 2011 Angel Award recipients.
For their outstanding volunteer service on behalf of Louisiana's children, seven men and women from across the state were named the 2011 winners of the Angel Award, presented by the Blue Cross/ Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation. The award includes a $20,000 grant for each honoree's chosen charity.
Staci Raborn knows all too well about the struggles a family faces fighting pediatric cancer; her son, Jake, died of a rare liver cancer at 4 years old. Raborn co-founded the Jake Owen Raborn Foundation to assist families financially during their struggles with pediatric cancer.
Dana Taylor was instrumental in launching the BackPacks for Kids Program at the Food Bank of Northeast Louisiana and still volunteers more than 100 hours per month. The program targets the more than 320 elementary school children in the Monroe area who suffer from chronic hunger.
