59 year-old Vicke Davis is a local celebrity among students at Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University. On Thursday afternoon, about 100 students rushed Davis' cash register to surprise her with an oversize check for nearly $2,500 to see the Northern Lights in Canada.

Woods took it upon himself to start a fundraiser for Davis on GoFundMe.com. Within 48 hours, more than 150 people had raised his goal of $2,000.
As Woods handed her the check and a camera to document her travels, Davis began to cry:
