Friends and family of a Lake Tahoe man seriously injured after a 15-foot fall have set up a Web site and are raising money on his behalf.

Beau Wright, a South Shore construction framer who grew up in Gardnerville, suffered head and leg injuries on Wednesday, March 18 while doing work in the Angora fire area of South Lake Tahoe, friend Robert Morris reports.

Wright, 27, was taken to Renown Medical Center in Reno where he remains heavily sedated, Morris said.

“As a longtime local and friend to many, Beau has his mortgage and other bills which need to be addressed,” Morris said. “Times are tough for everyone right now and for Beau, times just got a lot tougher. He needs our help right away.”

Morris created a Web site where people can go to send donations and prayers. The Web site is A fundraiser will be held at Whiskey Dicks on Saturday, April 4, and again, May 10, at Steamers Bar and Grill for Wright.

As of Tuesday more than $2,600 has been raised. Morris recommends that Tahoans pass hats around their offices or job sites. For more information contact Morris at
