Get out and about for Mother's Day

Celebrity Docs Raffle helps assist the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center, and thanks to Dick Campagni's Carson City Toyota, you could win a choice of a new 2009 Toyota Corolla or a 2009 Ford Focus.

This Mother's Day-themed fundraiser is a win/win event. Take your mom and celebrate, win a car and help fight against cancer. You can still enter for your chance to win and support the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center.

I have always been captivated with scenic Virginia City. From exploring the cemetery to dancing at the Old Washoe Club, you never know what adventures await.

This Mother's Day all the Bed and Breakfast inns will open their doors to the public for free tours and light refreshments. Four of the Bed and Breakfasts are located in historic homes with ties to Virginia City's bonanza days.

Edith Palmer's Country Inn occupies four restored homes from the 1860s, one of which housed Ellis Morton who ran a cider and vinegar factory behind the home.

The Chollar Mansion is located in the original mine superintendent's office of the Chollar mine.

The B Street House, built immediately after the Great Fire, is the original home of Henry Piper.

The Seven Mile Canyon Ranch was the former home of local legend John Tyson and now is home to horses available to guests desiring a dude ranch experience, which I highly recommend.

Mosey on up and walk through beautiful historic homes of the Wild West and relax like in the good old days.

For those racy Mom's who want to have a good time, this Mother's Day event will have you starting your engines to a beautiful day of golf with Carson's first female racing driver, Mackena Bell.

So grab your mom, her clubs and join the all the fun at Empire Ranch Golf Course with a shotgun start to a great day celebrating.
