The “High Fives for Heroes” fundraiser on Wednesday at Jimmy G’ Cigar Bar will go toward purchasing commemoration coins for Nevada National Guard troops deployed to overseas conflicts.

P.J. Degross, founder of Web of Support, said there will be a raffle, karaoke, food and music beginning at 5 p.m.

“A Challenge Coin, a small solid-bronze medallion is presented by the Command Team to all of the soldiers in a unit as mementos of their combat service together,” said Degross.

The coins will be given to troops in the Nevada National Guard’s 1864 Transportation Company and the Cavalry deployed to both Afghanistan and Iraq, she said.
