Letter: Girl gets dog, thank you Gallo’s

GI would like to take this opportunity to send out a heartfelt “thanks” to the management and staff at Gallo’s at Arctic and Dimond for the very successful fundraising event they did for my 8-year-old granddaughter so that she could obtain a Diabetic Assist Dog. She was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes earlier this year, and this dog will become a constant companion to her and assist in monitoring her by “alerting” to low or high blood sugar levels. I would also like to thank the generous people of Anchorage for items donated for the silent auction and the people who attended and bid on items. “Thank you” doesn’t seem enough!
