Sonora, CA — “A Dream for Cody” is the title of a benefit event coming up this weekend for three year old Cody Machado of Tuolumne.
Machado is affected by Coffin-Lowry syndrome, which is characterized by mental disabilities, low muscle tone, and greatly affects the individual´s spine.
The proceeds will benefit the Machado family.
Organizer Casie Jachetta says the event will kick off at noon this Saturday at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds. Performers will include Luvplanet, Crazy Ivan, Pink Vinyl, The Stallions, Casey Mountain, Joshua Turner, and others.
The festivities will continue until 11pm. A full spaghetti dinner will run from noon to 8pm, and a silent auction until 6pm. Tickets are $25 and will be available at the door.
Jechetta says the event will become annual. Next year proceeds will benefit another child.
