I’m sure many of you have heard about the recent and tragic shooting that happened at the gilroy garlic festival. One of those sweet souls injured in the shooting was Gabriella. We are so, so thankful she is alive but her injuries come with a cost, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well.


Gabriella was shot in her left shoulder, it grazed it but she has bullet fragments stuck in there and the middle of her right side back has a graze wound as well.


She recently turned 26 and is no longer covered with health insurance. The cost of these new medical bills are still unknown but we can only imagine that without insurance they will be expensive. 


We know that money can be tight for a lot of people so if you can’t give financially we completely understand. But if you can, send all the love and prayers to Gabriella and everyone else involved in this tragic event.

Dear friends, family and donators,
It’s been 17 days since the shooting took place. Everyday since the shooting feels like a year. I am watching and learning and relearning what moving past this will take. But I am motivated to do sto.
My shoulder and back have healed faster then I could have anticipated. I have 95% mobility in my shoulder and my back has almost completely scarred over. I am just now reintegrating physical activities that I did beforehand. I am in counseling multiple times a week and attempting to resume my normal life.
I have received an enormous outpouring of love and support. People bringing me flowers, food, gift boxes, donating to the GoFundMe, sharing the GoFundMe, people coming by to help with things I couldn’t do while injured, and still to this day random texts or messages throughout the day with people reminding me I am thought of. Having the support of my friends, family and community has given me the momentum to fight past this. Seeing all of Santa Cruz County and Gilroy rise up and stand together has made me extremely proud to of been born and raised in this community. #gilroystrong
Because of the prayers and financial contributions through GoFundMe and state aid I will not have to pay for ANY expenses related to this event. The money you all raised on GoFundMe covers my emergency room expenses COMPLETELY and support me in my long term well being. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this, and to Heidi and Kristen for setting it up.
For those of you who have asked how I’m doing, know I am doing well considering and am taking it moment by moment. I am looking towards reentering school on the 26th and getting my Bachelors in Sociology. I am considering a future surgery to remove the bullet from my left shoulder. And overall I am attempting to resume normal life. With faith and perseverance, I hope to one day use this experience for the greater good. I trust that will happen.
With love and gratitude,
Gabriella Gaus
