The Rock Port Beta Gals will host their annual Palm Sunday dinner on Sunday, April 14, 2019, at the United Methodist Church in Rock Port from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This year, the dinner will benefit the family of AJ and Wayne Smith, whose daughter Kalynn is fighting health issues. In October 2018, Kalynn was diagnosed with two very rare autoimmune diseases: Pr3 and Rnp, which means her immune system attacks her healthy cells and tissues and can cause major damage to her vital organs. She requires several repeat doctors’ visits and surgeries. Assistance to help with travel expenses and medical bills would be extremely helpful to their family.

The family has also recently been displaced out of their home due to the flood. AJ and Wayne are originally from Tarkio and live in Watson.
