Work It, SoVa features Rippe’s fundraiser for the Danville Cancer Association:

Sometimes a little flower can make a big difference — especially when that flower is made of fur and helps raise money for cancer patients.

Ben Rippe recently organized a fundraiser selling fur flower pins. On Friday, Rippe presented Kim Baldridge, executive director of the Danville Cancer Association, with a check from the proceeds from that campaign.

Rippe said he had a very special reason for organizing the fundraiser. “My mother is a double mastectomy survivor,” said Rippe. “She used to own this business with my father before I did. So when I got Rippe’s, one of my goals was to help the community.”
