Kendra Cummings was a "girly girl." She loved everything pink. She loved her cat Princess.

Four years ago, Kendra, 15, lost her battle with leukemia. But her memory lives on.

This year's third annual Kendra's Halo of Hope benefit is Oct. 14 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Harrybrooke Park off Still River Drive in New Milford.

Everlasting Entertainment, Kendra's brother Chris' business, will provide the disc jockey.

Face painters will be on hand, among other entertainment.

The afternoon will include a bake sale and a raffle. A drop box will be on-site for items needed by New Milford's Animal Welfare shelter.

"We donate to Dream Come True because they gave Kendra her last trip -- one to the Nickelodeon studios," said Kendra's sister, Katrina Cummings.

"We donate to Animal Welfare because that's where Kendra's kitty Princess was from, and she loved her kitty."
