Kellog’s supporters gathered at Texas Nite Life to raise money and awareness something one says Kellogg and her family deserves.

“She’s a tremendous person and trying to give back as much as you can to help out the family to try and relive the stress off of them and to try to give back as much as you can so that they don’t have to worry about that,” former co-worker to Kellogg Billy Koetter said.
