Local Business ‘Pennies Making Change’ Honors Ted Mackorell with Proceeds Benefiting Cancer Research

In November of 2013, siblings and Boone natives Andrew, 25, and Ashley Mackorell, 22, started Pennies Making Change, a business turning everyday pennies into jewelry with a meaning and uniting purpose. The business was started in honor of their late father and beloved member of the community, Ted Mackorell, who once owned Makoto’s Japanese Steakhouse and passed away in 2005 from brain cancer. Pennies Making Change donates 20 percent of all proceeds to the American Cancer Society. By Nikka Hronis – Photo by Ken Ketchie
