ZANESVILLE, Ohio– The Fraternal Order of Eagles hosted a benefit for 15 year old, Ryan Tullius, who was in a motor accident on April 15th, 2019 that took his life.
The community has come together for the Tullius family during this difficult time to donate to the family’s benefit.
Ryan’s mother, Kathy Tullius, stated, “They are having a Chinese auction, a live auction and a spagetti dinner. So we have really got some nice things. We have Bristol Moter Speedway Tickets, we got a Road Tiller, we got a cooler full of beer, we’ve got car washes, we’ve got fast food restaurants, we’ve got pizzas, we got all kinds of stuff. Everyone who has donated has really helped out”.
All money raised through this fundraiser directly went to the Tullius family. Ryan did not have a life insurance policy, so his family put together this event to help with the medical cost and final arrangements.
“This means so much. The whole community, since the day of the accident, has really stepped up and showed us how much love a 15 year old boy could acquire in his life. It means so much. It is unbelievable the amount of support we have been given”, Kathy added.
The event was held Friday, May 31st, from 3:00 p.m. to 8 p.m.. If you were unable to attend the event, you are still able to donate to the Tullis family either through their GoFundMe Page or to the Fraternal Order of Eagles who will pass it on to them.
