Galena Pal’s friends were there when she needed them the most.

Pal, a single mother, was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. She returned this month from chemotherapy in Vancouver to a fundraiser at Bloom Nightclub on Saturday that raised around $10,000, according to organizer Steve Archdekin.

Lint and DJ Hoola performed at Bloom, while some in attendance had their hair shaved in solidarity with Pal. Archdekin said he plans to keep looking for donations for Pal. He’ll be selling merchandise and baked goods at Market Fest today as part of the fundraiser.
