“Every girl deserves to feel like a princess!” says Keri Cannella-Moye, “There are no guarantees that everyone will find their dream dress in their size but we are hoping to haves hundreds of dresses to choose from.”
Keri founded Rachel’s Ray of Hope to honor her daughter Rachel who passed away on April 11, 2013, at the young age of 16. The organization is committed to providing help and assistance to those families in our community who are experiencing troubled times.
In May, 2014 Fayette Woman Magazine featured Keri as our cover story. You can read Keri’s story “Keri Cannella-Moye, In the Darkest Moment, A Light Shines” on our website.
