Sonora, CA– Organizers for the “A Dream for Cody” benefit event are hoping the turnout only gets better as the night continues.
Co- Founder of the event Casie Jachetta says they were hoping to have alittle bit more people,” but overall everyone attending seemed to be having a good time. Organizers say the proceeds from this evening´s event will benefit the family of Cody Machado, a three year old Tuolumne boy affected by Coffin- Lowry syndrome.
The benefit began at noon and will end at 11pm at the Mother Lode Fairgrounds. Jachetta says live entertainment, a silent auction, and raffles are taking place throughout the night.
Tickets are $25 at the door. Jachetta says it´s too hard to say how much money the benefit has raised at this time. She adds that those not able to attend tonight´s event can still donate at any Umpqua Bank.
