2nd Annual Fundraiser in Honor of Kelly Gratz

July 2017 was the second annual fundraiser for the Cholangiocarcinoma Foundation in honor of Kelly Gratz.  Kelly was diagnosed in February 2016 with stage 4 Cholangiocarcinoma. His children decided to host a fundraiser to rally as much emotional support for him through this battle and also to be able to raise money for the foundation and research.
