NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) -The community banded together for a benefit for a young woman from Ogallala on Saturday.

The benefit was to help raise money to help offset medical expenses of 28-year-old Alaina Connelly.

Alaina is recovering from a traumatic brain injury from an accident she was on July 28.

At the benefit, there were rows and rows of donated goods for the silent auction where people bid on items in person and virtually.

Alaina was overjoyed with the amount of support she received.

“I cannot thank any of them enough. With all the bills and acquiring debt medically and I still have more coming, I cannot thank them enough for their donations," Alaina said. "And even just their thoughts and prayers have been amazing. That’s all I really needed. Their support has been outstanding and amazing.”
