Fundraiser tonight benefits Guard troops

The “High Fives for Heroes” fundraiser tonight at Jimmy G’s Cigar Bar will go toward purchasing commemorative coins for Nevada National Guard troops deployed overseas.

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 Afghanistan and Iraq, she said.

Jimmy G’s is located at 301 N. Carson St.
