GoFundMe set for thousands in honor of Ole Miss student Ally Kostial

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Friends of former Ole Miss student, Ally Kostial are gathering together Tuesday night to raise money in honor of Kostial after she was murdered in July of 2019.

Ole Miss students have set up a GoFundMe with a goal of $150,000 in hopes to dedicate the new mind, body and soul yoga studio in Kostial’s name. In case the money is not raised organizers have a second plan to create a memorial flower garden.
