More groups raising funds to benefit Dayton mom

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

More fundraisers have been organized to benefit a Dayton single mother who was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

At 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday, friends of Wendy Robards will be working the concession stand at the Dayton Senior Center, 320 Old Dayton Valley Road, during the Misfits Theater Group’s play, “The Christmas Tree Farm, or It Doesn’t Pay to be Naughty at Christmas Time.”

The original play is about Aunt Mildred who cares for her niece. Aunt Mildred wants to give some choice property to her niece but an unscrupulous attorney schemes to acquire the property for himself. Tickets for the show to benefit Meals on Wheels are $10.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the concession stand will benefit Robards, said friend Janet Lochman.

From 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 17 and 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 20, 25 percent of the gross sales from Evergreen Gene’s nursery will go to Robards, said owner Gene Munnings.

Munnings’ shop, 1811 N. Carson St., also carries gifts and Christmas ornaments.
