Fundraiser Thursday to help local teenager buy diabetic alert service dog

The community is invited to help a Nipomo High School student raise money for a diabetic service dog.

Philip Vaughn, 17, has Down Syndrome and Type One Diabetes.

His mom says he has a hard time recognizing when his blood sugar level changes, and he needs a service dog to help him out.

On Thursday, a fundraiser is being held at Roadhouse Grill in Santa Maria. 20% of your purchase will go toward helping Philip get his dog.

They need to raise $18,000, and so far, they've raised $10,000.
