Cancer treatment fund-raiser slated for Aaron Bilbrey

A benefit to help defray the cost of cancer treatment for 14-year-old Aaron Bilbrey has been scheduled May 11 at Mulligan’s Irish Pub, 3600 Lake Tahoe Blvd.

Music by Tahoe’s favorite party band, The Riptides, will be provided from 8 to 11 p.m. Doors will open at 7 p.m. and everyone is encouraged to come early and haves dinner before the event. A $10 donation per person will provide entry to the benefit and one free raffle ticket for prizes donated by local merchants. Additional raffle tickets will be available or purchase at the event.

Among the raffle prizes will be breakfast for two at Passaretti’s, $25 certificate at the Cantina, five tans at California Style Salon, lunch for two at Mandarin Gardens, three free dinners at Los Mexicanos Restaurant, two free lunches at Hong Kong Express, gift certificate from Tahoe Spirit Coffee Cafe, $75 parasail ride from Ski Run Boat Co., hot air balloon ride for two from Bob Allen of Tahoe Balloons; and $25 gift certificate from South Tahoe Shell.

Fran and Leona Lennon, owners of Mulligan’s Irish Pub, are donating the use of their facility for the fund-raising event.

Bilbrey, the son of Brian and Lydia Bilbrey of South Lake Tahoe, was diagnosed with bone cancer in his left leg and has been traveling to Davis Medical Center once a week for chemotherapy treatments. It is likely that amputation will be necessary and he will be fitted with a prosthesis. The young man remains full of life and love. He is a member of the Lake Tahoe Pathfinder’s Club and helps other young people to see that wholesome life is a fun and fulfilling life.

Anyone who would like to make a donation to help with Aaron’s medical expenses may do so at Bank of the West, where an account has been established.

If you would like to donate a raffle prize and for more information call Roger Collins at (530) 541-3691.
