Auction items pile up for Mattinson fundraiser

Nearly 200 items have been donated for the Mattinson Family Fundraiser set for 5-9 p.m. Saturday at St. Gall Pastoral Center in Gardnerville.

Organizer Ginger Easley said the most recent items include a side of beef, wine weekend in Napa Valley, landscape package, handmade quilt and a painting of the old Minden flour mill by former school superintendent John Soderman.

District Judge Dave Gamble is set to be auctioneer from 8-9 p.m. There also will be a silent auction, raffle and door prizes.

Spaghetti dinner tickets are $7 per person and $25 for a family of four or more.

Friends of the family organized the dinner to help with medical expenses incurred following the Sept. 15 death of Britt Mattinson, 8, from a heart ailment.

The evening includes a performance by the Douglas High School Jazz Band and entertainment by disc jockey Chris Whybrew. Tickets may be purchased at Big Daddy's Bicycles, Taylor York Salon, Classical Glass, Wasabi's Restaurant and Indigo Restaurant, and will be sold at the door the night of the event.

The pastoral center is at 1343 Centerville Lane in Gardnerville.

Dinner tickets also are available from Shari Chappell, 782-0248.
