Lillian Jean surprised her parents, David and Elizabeth Galli, by showing up in Florida a few months earlier than expected. Lillian has made amazing progress but has a few more hurdles to overcome before she gets to come home to Riggins. Riggins local Tom Travis has donated this one-of-a-kind metal art work to be given to the lucky winner on March 8. One-hundred percent of all monies will go towards Lillian’s medical bills. Tickets for the drawing are $2 each or three for $5 and are available for purchase at the Tourist Trap Consignment & Gift Shop and Sterling Bank in Riggins. Share this info and help us make things a little easier for this young family!
