DerbyForDollarsan event to benefit the
Shannon Cox Counseling Center of Family & Youth


Derby for Dollars is a unique, one of a kind event held each May to benefit the Shannon Cox Counseling Center, a division of Family & Youth Counseling Agency. The Shannon Cox Counseling Center is a safe place where children can express their emotions and learn that their feelings are natural. We recognize that children grieve differently than adults and work with each child individually to help them build a bridge on their road to recovery.Shannon-Cox-no-back.png

The name sake of the Counseling Center, Shannon Cox, was a local advocate for the underprivileged and exploited. She made it her life’s work to help people who couldn’t help themselves. Shannon was tragically killed in a car accident in 2010. To honor her memory and work, John and Ginny Henning provided funds for the establishment of the Shannon Cox Counseling Center in 2011. Today, her friends, The Friends of Shannon Cox, continue to work in honor of Shannon’s memory by holding the annual Derby for Dollars event to benefit the Shannon Cox Counseling Center.
