Summerfest provides hope and healing services

The Douglas Center for Hope and Healing prides itself on the fact there's no charge for services.

To help defray the cost of services, the center is hosting its second annual Summerfest set for Aug. 18 at Minden Park.

"We understand the burden of loss and want people to receive the help they need without adding on to their stress and costs," said center co-founder and executive director Jodi Wass.

The 501(c)3 nonprofit center has provided grief support to more than 150 children, teens and families in the Carson Valley and surrounding communities since 2011.

"We're a resource center for children, teens and families who've had a loss," said Wass. "We have to fundraise to pay for rent, utilities and the 24-hour hotline so we can continue to provide free counseling to our community."

Partnered with the Carson Valley Active 20-30 Club and in conjunction with the Main Street Event Cars Show, Summerfest visitors can view cars, performances by "Trippin King Snakes" and "Jackota Wass," enjoy bratwurst and beer tasting, a silent auction and more.

"With the help of the community, the Douglas Center for Hope and Healing can continue to provide support for people who have lost a loved one," said Wass.

The Summerfest is set for 4-8 p.m. Aug. 18 at Minden Park. Cost, $20 pre-sale or $25 at the door.
