Good time planned for good cause

Wendy Jones Tucker is a longtime Lake Tahoe resident. She is a single parent and lives in Zephyr Cove with her 12-year-old son, Tony. She recently underwent extensive medical treatments, including several surgeries that have disabled her from working and being able to support her son. In addition, the medical bills are exorbitant, far exceeding insurance coverage.

Tucker has been an active supporter of the Pop Warner football league as well as Little League, volunteering endless hours. She is always quick to offer a smile and has a warm and positive outlook on life.

A benefit fit is planned for Aug. 5 to raise funds to help support Tucker and her son. Zephyr Cove Resort has provided the site at the north beach between 1 to 5 p.m. Local bands, The Plants, including Patrick Major, Niall Mcguinness and Tarius Macara from Bodhi Tree, as well as Jesse Calin and Dave Musser of Cool Black Kettle will donate their time and provide music from 1 to 3:30 p.m. Well known magician Bob Allen will volunteer his talents and magic as Wack-O the Wizard from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Food and beverage will be available at the resort or people may bring their own picnic basket. This will be a fun-filled event for all on the beautiful beach at Lake Tahoe.

A $3 donation per person is requested at the entrance and will include one free raffle ticket. Additional raffle tickets will be sold throughout the event and all proceeds will go directly to Wendy and Toby. There will be thousands of dollars worth of prizes all donated by local businesses, including hotel and lodging, dinners from a variety of restaurants, massages, spa treatments and cruises.

Donations are being accepted at the Wells Fargo Bank in the Round Hill Safeway in Wendy Jones Tucker’s name.
