Fundraiser to honor Fairhope teen who lost battle with cancer

Baldwin County

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (WKRG) — This is the fourth year in a row the parents of Caroline Richmond are working to raise money for child cancer research.

Caroline lost her battle with Leukemia six years ago. She was 14 years old.

Now, her family has grown increasingly involved with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, an organization that funds research, training and treatment for children with cancer.

Dallas Richmond, Caroline’s father, is holding a barbecue fundraiser. His grill is set up outside of Little Whiskey Christmas Club in Fairhope. You can pre-order by giving him a call at (251) 209-1607. He will also be set up downtown all weekend during the Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival.

On Sunday, Dallas and his son will be attending a St. Baldrick’s event in Mobile. They will both be shaving their heads in solidarity with Caroline, and all other children battling cancer.
