Zombie crawl benefits youth

Staff Reports

On Oct. 22, Sierra Nevada No. 730 led nearly 40 zombies of Douglas County through the town of Gardnerville on a Zombie Crawl.

The outbreak began at Buckaroos Saloon and crawled toward The French Bar, Overland, JT’s, and eventually landed at Sharkey’s.

Along with the crawl there was a poker run, 50/50 raffle and costume contest. Their brother club – Carson Valley No. 85 – judged the costume contest, which was won by Duane Dougherty of Reno.

Proceeds from the Zombie Crawl will benefit the special needs children in Douglas County.

Active 20-30 International is a non-profit organization providing young adults with an opportunity to make a difference in the life of special needs children in their communities.

The Sierra Nevada Women’s Active 20-30 Club No. 730 provides young women between the ages of 20 and 39 the forum and tools to positively affect underprivileged children in Douglas County.

Sierra Nevada women support such agencies as Austin’s House, Backpack Buddies, the Boys & Girls Club of Carson Valley, the Family Support Council, Kids & Horses and other organizations with a priority in assisting special needs children.
