– About –

Sherrie Austin : President and Founder

The Cynthia Rose Foundation is as close to my heart as anything can possibly be. It was born out of a true desire to give back to the world both in honor of my sister, Cindy, and her son (my nephew) Tyler, and to outwardly express gratitude for all I have been given.

My father said it best when he said, “This foundation is your heart and her heart working together.” And so it is – except it is OUR hearts and her heart working together to make even the smallest amount of difference in any way we can.

Top destination on my wish list: Tahiti.

Tia Brainard : Secretary

I have been married for 22 years and I have two beautiful daughter’s, 19 and 15. I love being a mom and spending time with my family.

The Cynthia Rose Foundation brings great joy to my heart and I’m very excited to share this with others. I believe that it’s the little things in life that mean the most.

Favorite activity: swimming, biking and running

Kathleen “Peachy” Wright : Board Member

I am honored to be a part of the Cynthia Rose Foundation. Cindy was a beautiful person who cared so deeply for others. The foundation allows us to spread joy to others through acts of kindness both large and small.

The Cynthia Rose Foundation reminds us to appreciate all that we are given and remember that any act of kindness can make a huge impact on a person’s life. Cindy’s advice always stick in my head: don’t worry about the small things and enjoy your time while you have it.

I truly believe that small acts of kindness can create big change. It’s amazing to be part of The Cynthia Rose Foundation and see those beliefs put into action.
