Friends of Cecilia Ristau are hosting an ice cream social from 2-4 p.m. Sunday at St. Gall Pastoral Center in Gardnerville to assist the 16-year-old Douglas High School junior and soccer player with medical expenses.
She is undergoing treatment for a lifetime of medical conditions including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and multiple autoimmune diseases.
Recently, a foot infection led to the amputation of the little toe on her left foot and the bone to the ankle.
Admission to the fundraiser is free, and donations will be accepted for ice cream that was donated by Model Dairy.
The center is located at 1343 Centerville Lane.
Baked goods will be on sale along with tickets for raffle and silent auction items.
To donate items for the fundraiser, contact Debbie Hergenrader, 783-8840, or Annette Kangas, 265-1831.
Donations may be made at any Bank of America branch, account No. 501003940844.
