In May, local community member Sean Riley suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of a succession of blackouts and falls. Sean is an off-road tour guide for Lake Tahoe Adventures and his wife, Georgette, works for the Lake Tahoe Visitors Authority and the TahoeChamber, and both are good friends of Valorie and the rest of the team.
A Beach Bash Benefit at Zephyr Cove Resort will take place on Wednesday, August 15th from 5-8 PM to help the family with the ongoing care expenses. Sean is doing well, but does have some issues with comprehension and memory as a result of the injury, and has a long road to recovery requiring extensive physical therapy, home supervision and care.
Sean and Georgette have both contributed time and resources to organizations such as the National Ski Patrol, the Tahoe Rim Trail, and Bread and Broth, not to mention their contributions to their respective work places. They are valued members of our community and now need our help.
The Beach Bash Benefit will include dinner with live music and a no-host bar, along with a silent auction, live auction, and raffle. Funds raised will be used to help pay for Sean’s continued medical and therapeutic care costs. Tickets to the event are $35, and include dinner and a raffle ticket.
Through Aramark/Zephyr Cove Resort’s generous contribution to this event $25 of every ticket sold will go directly to assisting Sean. Tickets can be purchased online or in advance at the LTVA Visitor Center, 3066 Lake Tahoe Blvd (across from Rojo’s).
V’z is putting together some terrific items for the auction, and will be at the event. We hope to see you there!
