Our dear friend Pat Barron passed away on June 14, 2018, and our community has lost a shining star. Pat was a dedicated leader in the fight against domestic violence in El Dorado County and beyond and the founder of Kacie’s Ride for Hope to End Domestic Violence.
From 2006 until 2015 Pat and a dedicated crew of folks worked tirelessly to put on the Hope Valley bike run that raised over $200,000 to support local victims of domestic violence. In 2014, The Center renamed our shelter, “Kacie’s House of Hope” to honor Pat’s sister Kacie and Pat’s dedication to ending domestic violence.
Pat was our brother in the fight against domestic violence and he and Sharon (who passed away in 2017) are dearly missed and will always be remembered in our hearts.
A memorial will be held to celebrate Pat’s life at Green Valley Community Church. Please join us on Friday August 3, 2018 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm.
