Morgan Behen was 22 years old when she finally got to go to her own prom.

Fighting a terminal illness, the Red Wings fan asked Riley Sheahan to the dance in May 2016. When he said yes, her family didn't let her know -- until the night of the dance.

Five months later, Morgan passed, but her friendship with the NHL player - and her impact on the community - continue to inspire.

On Monday, her parents and sisters held the first Morgan Behen Golf Outing, raising over $100,000 for an endowment fund in her name. Brad Galli has more.
