Nevada County Search and Rescue BBQ is This Weekend

Nevada County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue is hoping the community will support them at their 16th annual BBQ fundraiser Saturday, September 10th.  It’s going to be at the Nevada County Sportsmen’s off Gracie Road from 2 to 7 pm.  Sheriff’s Search and Rescue Coordinator, Bill Netherby says they will feature a Tri tip or chicken Dinner with Games, Search Dog Demonstrations and a Pack Display.  They will also be raffling off a sizeable gold nugget valued at $2,000.

“The gold nugget actually belongs to one of our mine team members and he’s donating it to the cause. It was actually found in a claim up in Sierra County, so it’s a local creek that it was found in and the second was also found in the same area.”

Gold Nugget raffle tickets are available from any of the search and rescue volunteers.  Corporal Netherby says it can cost quite a bit to outfit and train each of the 110 volunteers that make up Nevada County Search and Rescue.

“Today, every little thing costs money and it all adds up and they could spend from a few hundred to a few thousand  dollars just depending on the need. Dog training and just little things like paying for gas to go to training, it all adds up to a significant amount.”

Tickets for the BBQ Fundraiser are $15 adults, $5 for kids 4-12 years of age. Tickets are on sale at SPD markets in Grass Valley and Nevada City and at Briarpatch.
