Today we spoke with Jessica Mathison, owner of the Idleyld Lodge, about the New Year’s Eve Gala for Gally. A benefit party for 19-year-old Gally Rust. Gally has been battling poor health including kidney failure and failing eyesight. Through it all Gally’s positive attitude and strength to keep going have inspired those around her. We were joined by Gally’s mother, Erika, and Gally’s sister who talked about Gally’s daily life and what she means to them. It was obvious in the studio that this young woman is loved by everyone around her and inspires the best in people.
For a great, family-friendly party on New Year’s Eve and the opportunity to help a local family who has been hit hard by the unexpected financial blows of medial ailments, get your tickets to the gala online or at the Idleyld Lodge in Glide.
If you are unable to attend the event, but are moved to help Galla and her family there is a gofundme account set up to take donations.
Listen to today’s Inside Douglas County to hear Galla’s story, Jessica’s decision to help, and more about the fundraiser.
