Heart Healthy Potluck & Fundraiser For Local Musician Peg Reza

Sponsored by:

On August 14th Peg Reza, a well known ukulele musician & Mother Lode resident, had a massive heart attack.

BZ Smith, friend and spokesperson for Reza’s upcoming fundraiser, was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.

“After a 5-hour open heart surgery and a quadruple bypass, Reza is on slowly on the mend, recovering in a rehab facility,” said Smith. “It is time for our community to reach out and help this local legend. So, we’re having a HEART-HEALTHY POTLUCK!”

On Sunday September 15th, the Peg O’My Heart: Fundraiser & Heart-Healthy Potluck will take place in the Columbia Firehouse on Jackson Street in Columbia. The event will take place from 3 PM through 9 PM.

There will be live music with some of the area’s best-loved musicians, a silent auction, a raffle and a whole lot of good, healthy food. The public is invited to bring thier own heart-healthy dish that will serve 10-12 people.

The suggested donation at the door is $10, but according to Smith, all large and small gifts are welcomed.

If you’d like to donate an item for the silent auction, please contact Diane DelPriore 209.559.2423.
