WOW! Look below to see the list of some of the “Everywhere Celebrations!”


Three celebrations for an amazing person! Look below for more information. If you would like to support Sarah’s husband, Jason, and her daughter, Lena, donations may be sent via PayPal to hornfamilyfund@gmail.com. Donations received will be used to purchase a set of stones in New York City’s Central Park engraved with Sarah’s name and a message from Sarah to Lena.

A “Southern” Celebration of Sarah Halperin Horn:
Sunday, December 29 at 4:00 PM, Dauphin Island, Public Beach
Directions: Go over the Dauphin Island bridge, come to three way stop, turn right, go about a mile down the road and the public beach will be on the left just after Dauphin Island Elementary School.
(Due to nasty looking weather on Saturday we moved the time to Sunday.)

A “Northern” Celebration of Sarah Halperin Horn:
If you are in the New York area and would like to attend the services they are having this Saturday you may visit hornlink.blogspot.com for more information.

An “Everywhere” Celebration of Sarah Halperin Horn – Saturday, December 28, 3PM EST:
Because there are so many people touched by Sarah’s wonderful personality, Jason has also set a time for anyone, anywhere to stop and celebrate Sarah. On Saturday, December 28 at approximately 3 p.m. Eastern Standard Time there will be people all over the world celebrating.

Jason’s idea “If we could reproduce this everywhere there are people who can’t make it to one of the formal celebrations that would be magical.” So, if you want to celebrate Sarah’s life but will be somewhere else on Saturday, don’t worry, just paddle out into the ocean, a lake or river, or just go somewhere peaceful and think about Sarah at about 3 p.m. EST on Saturday. Her smiles will be filling the earth!
