By Bernadette Lauritzen

Anytime you have a chance to fundraise with friends for a good cause, life as you know it is pretty good.
This Monday, local Los Alamos High School senior Keanna Cohen and her posse of pals will be serving up smiles and burgers from 5-8 p.m. at the United Way Hamburger Night, hosted by the Hill Diner.
“The United Way Youth Team members are very involved in many activities and yet they find time and energy to work for this noble cause,” said Morrie Pongratz, the Youth Team adult leader.
Pongratz, himself an avid volunteer, dons the white suit, sideburns and sunglasses from time to time, to allow Elvis to enter the building. The celebrity servers in the past have included; Dr. Gene Schmidt, Dr. Ben Neal and Sparky the Fire Dog, to name a few.
Cohen, a vivacious volunteer, is undeterred when it comes to pulling off a project. She recently took a few moments to rave about her fellow team members.
Cohen praised freshman Justin Dunn, who joined the group last year. She commended Dunn for his leadership and knows if he continues with the program, they will be successful.
Cohen also complimented newcomer, Kayla Suazo, in her first year with the team. This year, Suazo served as the Youth Team’s marketing manager and according to Cohen has done, “a phenomenal job.”
