There was lots of love this past weekend for the youth of Nevada County. Great attendance at the volleyball games at Union Hill School. Also on Saturday, thanks to all that went out to run and walk and donate to Austin Dowling. Shocking to hear about someone so young and strong battling for his life against leukemia. Then on Sunday, a very big and generous crowd gathered at the Nevada City Elks Lodge for a fundraiser benefiting Daniel Robertson, a young man recently paralyzed in a motorcycle accident and now rehabbing and getting ready to start a new life. Great to know that our community never hesitates to stand up and help. Outstanding job by all the organizers and those that attended.
