Benefit For Kassy Kallio @ Lakes Lounge
Apr 30 @ 1:00 pm – May 1 @ 1:00 am

Hello please Join me in giving Kassy Kallio some Support.
As you may all know Kassy had to have her leg amputated due to an infection she received in her leg… Now she has a long road of recovery. She will not be able to return to work for quite some time & during this time Kassy will still have to maintain a home for her family. I figured a Benefit would help ease some of the burden. I know she’ll be getting a New Prosthetic and will need all the things you will need to protect it like a waterproof cover, padding,Compression socks,etc etc .. Just to name a few things that are needed.
