Oct. 28 benefit for Stillwater sisters injured in Hwy 5 crash
STILLWATER, Minn. (KMSP) -
A benefit has been scheduled to support the recovery of Stillwater sisters Marah and Kalley Sobczak, who were critically injured in a horrific head-on crash last month, but shocked their doctors with their amazing recovery.
The Sobczak sisters have undergone six surgeries -- two for Kalley and four for Marah. Some of the procedures lasted as long as seven hours.
Kalley, 15, should recover fully, but 20-year-old Marah was hurt the worst. It took 50 minutes to extract the two-time state hockey champion out of the wreckage, but doctors say her prognosis is still a positive one.
Marah Sobczak had expected to start her junior year at Gustavus Adolphus and resume her role as goalie, and the family still isn't sure of how the crash could impact her financial aid.
The sisters still have a lot of rehabilitation ahead of them, and insurance won't cover all of it.
A benefit for the Sobczak family will be held Oct. 28 at the Water Street Inn in Stillwater. There will be a silent auction, raffle, food, drinks and music.
Sobczak Family Benefit Sunday, Oct. 28 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Historic Water Street Inn 101 Water Street South, Stillwater
Cash donations can also be made at any Bremer Bank location into the Sobczak Family Benefit account.
