Rai Henniger Family Fund

A quick update on Colorado Springs senior vice president of marketing Rai Henniger, who is in serious condition in a Denver hospital after being injured May 12 when a pyrotechnics display he was setting up prior to a game exploded.

The SkySox sent out a release today with information regarding a fund for Henniger’s family to help offset medical and cost-of-living expenses.

Below are a few paragraphs from the release:

Henniger’s wife, Heather, is now living in a Denver hotel while her parents are caring for their children. The Henniger children are shuttling back and forth between Denver and Colorado Springs to see their mother. Mom and children plan to relocate to a small apartment in Denver for the duration of his treatments, which could be up to several months.

The “Rai Henniger Family Fund” has been established at Security Service Federal Credit Union. Donations can be dropped off at any Security Service location in Colorado Springs, Pueblo or Denver or mailed to: The Rai Henniger Family Fund, 1485 Kelly Johnson Boulevard, Colorado Springs, Colo. 80920.

The fund will help offset the tremendous healthcare and family expenses that the Hennigers will face in the coming year(s). Businesses and community citizens who have expressed interest in raising funds for the family are encouraged to do so but to make the contributions directly through this fund.

Flowers cannot be sent to the hospital. Anyone interested in sending cards, with or without checks can send them to the Sky Sox offices at the ballpark at:

“The Henniger Family”
c/o Sky Sox
4385 Tutt Boulevard
Colorado Springs, CO 80922

All cards received are being taped up throughout Rai Henniger’s room during his stay at a hospital in Denver.
