CASCADE LOCKS -- Community groups in Cascade Locks and from throughout Hood River County are rallying to help cancer victim Zach Jones and his family.
A day-long fundraiser is planned Sept. 15 at Port of Cascade Locks Marine Park pavilion starting at 9 a.m. The agenda includes a tug-of-war competition of 10-men/women teams and junior teams for ages 17 and under. Five-person teams may also enter. The fee is $50 for 10-person teams and $25 for five-person teams.
A garage sale is also scheduled as well as a bake sale. Kids activities include a cupcake walk, bubble pond, races and games. Musicians will play throughout the day, a bingo tent is planned, and food will be for sale.
Donations can be made to Riverview Savings Bank, c/o Zach Jones Fund, Stevenson, Wash.
Zach, 22, of Cascade Locks, is the father of two children. He learned last month that he has cancer and currently undergoing treatment.
