The untimely death of Splashes of Hope Advisory Board member Larry Kushnik has shocked and saddened all of us. Larry, a close friend of Splashes President Brian Yudewitz, was a true ambassador for our organization. He attracted new members and supporters while generously donating time and funding to our charity. His devotion to community service-also evidenced in his Huntington Town Chamber of Commerce membership-inspired many people to give back to their neighborhoods and towns.
Larry's energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor always contributed to the fun at our Splashes events, especially the bay cruise! Part of his legacy was helping to create a colorful, happy environment for children suffering from illness or injury.
Larry was a devoted father to his son, Jordan. We want Jordan to know that the Splashes Castle is always open to him. We will miss Larry very much, and we offer our sincere condolences to his loved ones.
