GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.
Loma community members are gathering for a benefit Saturday from 4-8 p.m at the Absolute Prestige Ranch. There will be a dinner catered by the Cattlemen’s Bar and Grille with live performances from Peggy Malone and Joey Rowland. Additionally, 67 auction items will be raffled off via a live and silent auction. Auction items include trips to Mexico, Las Vegas, VIP Country Jam tickets, a firepit, and plenty more.
The funds will go towards Alyza Wachholtz and her son, Briggs. Briggs was born prematurely at 28 weeks, and after spending months caring for the early arrival of her baby at Children’s Hospital, Alyza was diagnosed with stage 3B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Alyza began recieving chemotherapy in October in an aggressive attempt to battle the cancer. Alyza will also need to receive radiation in addition to the chemotherapy.
Briggs, unfortunately, still needs multiple surgeries of his own. Loma community members hope to raise 15 thousand dollars at this weekend’s benefit to pay for the families’ medical bills.
