Guest bartender night benefits Storkes

East Fork Local 3726 station (Douglas County) is having a guest bartender night, 5 p.m., Wednesday, at The Corner Bar, 1596 Esmeralda Ave., Minden.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to Elisa Storke’s medical costs. The 34-year-old Reno resident is undergoing cancer treatment. She is the wife of Douglas County Sheriff’s Office investigator Jon Storke.

On Feb. 21, the firefighters and paramedics were victorious in a dodgeball tournament with DCSO that raised nearly $14,000 for the Storkes.

That money is designated for prepaid tuition for the couple’s 9-month-old son, Dylan.

Elisa Storke is a doctoral student at University of Nevada, Reno, and an instructor in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages program.

Firefighters and paramedics will serve as guest bartenders. The association is matching donations of up to $1,000, and the bar is donating 10 percent of the till for the night.

Off-duty sheriff’s deputies will act as designated drivers for a $1 donation.
