The Cradle and The Cradle Foundation mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Bonnie Krasny, who passed away in March following a valiant battle with cancer.

During her nearly decade-long tenure as Events Manager for The Cradle Foundation, Bonnie worked with volunteer committees to expertly organize several major fundraising events each year, including The Cradle Classic, Day at the Races, First Look for Charity and The Cradle Ball. The newest event, Night of Promise, began in 2006 under Bonnie’s direction. She was always a great Cradle champion and her efforts made a tremendous contribution to the organization.

Personally, Bonnie was known for her superb taste and sense of style. We also know how proud she was of her two adult children, Alex and Britt, and how much she loved being “Nana” to her four young grandchildren. We extend our sincere condolences to Bonnie’s husband Phil and their kids, to her extended family, and to everyone who loved her.
