The Observatory and Ruins are helping promote a GoFundMe campaign to support a Spokane bartender

The Observatory and Ruins are helping promote a GoFundMe campaign to support a Spokane bartender.

On its Facebook page, Ruins recently posted: “Just found out our lovely bartender Kelly Fay Vaughn has a stage 3 brain tumor. She’ll get through this with help. Any monetary amount helps pay the bills which will most likely stack up. Stay tuned for dinners that will help with the cause. We love Kelly and want her to get better!”

According to the campaign’s GoFundMe page, The Observatory in downtown Spokane is taking cash donations “if that’s more your style. Thanks in advance to all her wonderful friends and family.”

So far, $6,890 of a goal of $8,000 has been raised in seven days. Click here for the GoFundMe page.

Ruins is at 825 N. Monroe St. Call (509) 443-5606. On Facebook:
