Over $40,000 was raised at a benefit for a girl who has done so much to help others in her community and is now battling leukemia.
Sophie Greenwalt was recently honored by the American Red Cross with their Everyday Hero Award for her charitable activities, and Congressman Billy Long has also recognized the teen for her efforts.
Oakley Auto World has teamed up with Greenwalt in the past to help provide money for a Thanksgiving meal for the community. They have pledged to donate $100 for every car sold to help the teen and her family.
"One of the employees at Wyndham Resorts, whose daughter plays volleyball with Soph, started a fund to help that has raised over $4,000 to date," said family friend Kristal Porter.
Sophie has had some medical setbacks this week and will have to undergo surgery.
A volleyball tournament to benefit Sophie and her family will be held at the Reeds Spring High School on Saturday May, 4th.
"The outpouring of generosity has been a huge blessing for the family," said Porter.
