Allie Buss is a new addition to the Angel Eyes Board of Directors. She currently lives in Lakewood, Colorado, and was born and raised in Denver. Her family lost her older brother, Andrew, to SIDS. As Allie’s mom, Donna, volunteered and was on the Board of Directors, she spent a lot of time volunteering for Angel Eyes (formerly the Colorado SIDS Program) when she was young. Allie wanted to join the Board of Directors after recently moving back to Colorado from Washington, to give back to this wonderful organization that helps families during a very difficult time.
Scott has been in social work for 25 years and has supported families in several scenarios. In 2013 Scott was approached to volunteer by a SUDS for SIDS committee member and has been a huge contributor to the Beer Fest ever since. Because of his hard work and dedication to Angel Eyes, he was asked to serve on the Board beginning in 2018. Like many board members at Angel Eyes, Scott was affected by a sudden loss of a child when close family members lost their baby to SIDS. Although it occurred many years ago, he recognized the support the family needed back then and understands the needs of other families in similar circumstances.
