Party for Hardy at Sugar Bowl Resort

Special to the Sun

Whitney Hardy works with a speech therapist in her path to recovery.

On Sunday, Oct. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m., join supporters of Whitney Hardy at Sugar Bowl Resort's Mt. Judah Lodge at Party for Hardy, a gala evening fundraiser.

The event will include dinner, a live auction with the Simone and Porter duo, a silent auction and raffle, as well as a no-host bar. The fundraiser will benefit Whitney, who suffered a brain injury when she was hit by a car last February in Boston.

Whitney, who was born and raised in Truckee, continues to make remarkable progress in her recovery, but still needs a lot of rehab services. A limited number of tickets are available for $50, in Truckee at Cake Tahoe, Specialty Beads, California Welcome Center at the train depot, Truckee River Winery, and Wild Cherries; in Squaw Valley at Squaw Valley Realty and Mamasake; and in Tahoe City at Tahoe Luxury Properties and New Moon Natural Foods.
