Bouncing for donations at Carson Valley Days

Gardnerville’s Bounzity House will be bouncing through Carson Valley Days, taking donations of canned food and cash on behalf of the Carson Valley Community Food Closet in lieu of their regular fees Thursday through Sunday.

Owners Kate Molina and Michael Flamm said they will be donating all of their proceeds to the food closet.

“We’re not going to have a set price,” Molina said. “Any amount donated will get kids a wristband to jump on the bounce houses.”

Bounzity House will be located on the rights side of the softball field behind the Carson Valley Days Carnival.

“We really would like to make a substantial donation to the food closet,” she said.
