It's gonna to take a long time for her to recover, so for us to be able to do this and for the opportunity to do it, I think we're all grateful for the opportunity," says Maryann Hollis of the Law Enforcement Wives of Wood County.

Some made get well soon cards for Angie and enjoyed face painting and raffle drawings.

They have raised over $6,000 through private donations so far.
