Lauren || Chapter Leader
Hi, my name is Lauren Cassidy! I grew up in Omaha, NE and am excited to be the BOB Chapter Leader here. By day I am an accountant, and when I am not busy working I like to spend my time with family and friends. I am a homebody that enjoys to spend my weekends relaxing with a good book or watching anything & everything Netflix has to offer. I decided to get involved with Box of Balloons because I think every child deserves to at the very least have that one special day of the year (their birthday) that is theirs to celebrate & feel extra special. I am excited to be on the Box of Balloons team and to bring joy and happiness to the kids of the Omaha area!
Tara || Chapter Leader
Hi My name is Tara (Gohl) Suckstorf. I grew up in Central City, NE, but have lived in Lincoln with my husband Travis & 4 sons Cale, Camden, Colson & Cooper since 2000. I am super excited to bring Box of Balloons to Lincoln. Not only does the idea behind BOB tug at my heartstrings, but I love when my volunteering can become something I can involve our children in.
By day, I am a Mortgage Loan Officer for Peoples Mortgage. Every other waking minute, I’m probably taking one of the boys to school or an extra circular. I love “game days” at our house and watching the boys participate in things they love. We also enjoy volunteering together and are big Husker football fans.
As a mom, I know how important birthdays are for children and their families. I’m thrilled we can help take the financial stress off the parents and make the day extra special for the birthday boy/girl. My goal with BOB Lincoln is to get volunteers to pledge a set amount each month so we are able to help as many children feel special on their birthdays as possible!
