Fundraiser Held For Dana Truitt


OCEAN CITY, Md.- Dana Truitt has been home from the hospital for nearly a week but she still faces years of recovery and mounting medical bills.

But the Ocean City community is stepping up to help the lone survivor of the horrific fire at Shepherd's Crook Pantry that took the life of Reverend David Dingwall and John Sterner.

A fundraiser held at Seacrets Friday night was attended by close friends and concerned strangers.

"We love her and we're so glad she's home and this is awesome, she deserves every bit of this," said friend Kim Lukens.

Dana Truitt was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.

"I'm just so surprised that ocean city has come together for someone she doesn't even know and it's very surprising, very surprising," she said.

And it's part of why she's so happy to be home in Ocean City.

"I've been home a week today and it feels great to be back home, it feels great," Truitt said.

So far, more than $10,000 has been raised for Truitt, and if you want to help out donations can be made at
