Photo Finish community raises funds for deceased member’s family

89 horses were donated for auction with proceeds directed to a trust for Amber Coleman's kids

In a heartwarming display of solidarity, the Photo Finish LIVE community came together to honor the memory of a cherished member, Amber Coleman, also known as SlyRaven, who recently passed away after battling Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).

After learning of Amber's passing, members of the Photo Finish LIVE family sprang into action to fulfill her heartfelt wish—to secure a bright future for her children.

What began as a touching idea quickly evolved into a global effort, with community members donating 89 horses for auction. All proceeds from this initiative were earmarked for a trust benefiting Amber's two children.

The two-day marathon streaming auction, alongside cryptocurrency donations and a GoFundMe campaign, amassed over $81,000. This significant sum represents a crucial step toward realizing Amber's dreams for her family.

Reflecting on the initiative, Lacy, chief organizer of the auction and owner of Valkyrie Racing, highlighted Amber's aspirations and the collective endeavor to honor them.

Lacy mentioned Amber's desire to witness her horse compete in the prestigious Virtual Kentucky Derby, besides ensuring her children's welfare.

In a touching gesture, one community member renamed his qualified horse Soaring Raven in honor of Amber, shortly before she entered hospice care. Despite her battle with ALS, Amber's spirit soared as the horse she inspired clinched a podium finish in the Virtual Kentucky Derby.

Lacy expressed gratitude for the community's unwavering dedication, emphasizing the profound impact of their support on Amber's family.

Amber found solace and camaraderie within the Photo Finish LIVE community, where she felt valued beyond her illness.

Plans to commemorate Amber's legacy include naming races in her honor and breeding horses to perpetuate her bloodlines. Lacy believes that Amber's enduring legacy lies not only in tangible gestures but also in the intangible gifts of hope, strength, and unity she imparted.

Reflecting on the community's solidarity, Lacy remarked on its unique ability to rally support in times of need, attracting newcomers with its inclusive ethos.

To Amber's family, Lacy conveyed the community's profound admiration for Amber's resilience and the positive impact she had on everyone she encountered. By supporting her children's future, the Photo Finish LIVE community hopes to alleviate some of the burdens Amber carried.

In honoring Amber's memory, the Photo Finish LIVE community demonstrated the transformative power of compassion and collective action in making a meaningful difference in the lives of others.
