After the Griz beat Cal-Poly, make your way to the Reno Bar & Grill in East Missoula for the Benefit Dinner for Sammi Ward. This is the email that was received from Sammi that prompted Danny D's  interview this
morning:

Hello my name is Sammi Ward. I recently survived a major brain surgery where the doctor removed a tumor that was attached to my brain stem.
The surgery was very unexpected and due to the placement of the tumor was a very risky procedure. I just turned 18 and graduated from Hellgate High School as the Cheer Captain. I had plans of going to college to be a radiology tech and would still like to achieve my dream. I will have a long recovery and need your help. All funds will assist me with my recovery process. Thank you for taking the time to meet me...
