Troy sixth grader Blazie Gilder was recently diagnosed with the disease and she's undergoing treatments in Spokane. Friends of the Gilder family organized a fundraiser to help the them pay the medical bills.
"Well, the Gilders are such a big part of the Troy and Moscow community, and to hear news such as this, it's heartbreaking," said family friend Jennifer Johnson.
The benefit is Friday night at the Latah County Fairgrounds and tickets are $30 per person. Doors will open at 6:00, dinner will be served at 7:00, and there will be a live auction at 8:00. You can buy tickets at the door, or at the Sterling Bank locations in Moscow and Troy.
