The Wilson – Yates Kidney Transplant Fundraiser
October 10, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Dinner, Wine tasting and Raffle at Bruno’s restaurant on Saturday, October 10th at 5:30 p.m to raise funds for the Wilson and Yates family who are undergoing kidney transplant on Tuesday, September 23rd.
A fundraising event has been set to take place on October 10th at Bruno’s BBQ to help the two families that will soon undergo a kidney donation and kidney transplant.
Both the donor and the recipient are long-time supporters of the Scotts Valley commUNITY and have been coaches for the Scotts Valley Little League.
Stan Wilson has been suffering from a kidney condition for several years now and he has been in need of a kidney transplant as his kidney function is below 10% at the time of this writing.
Amazingly enough, fellow coach and friend, Craig Yates offered a kidney to his friend Stan, not knowing if he was a match, and sure enough he was the perfect match. The odds of finding a perfect match are astronomical and Craig and Stan will soon be connected like never before when Stan gets Craig’s kidney on September 23rd, 2015.
The story is one that is made for the movies as all the stars had to align perfectly in order for things to progress to the point that they have, and now there is a fundraiser being put together to help both families with medical and loss of income costs while they both go through the procedure and recovery.
The event will be Saturday, October 10th at Bruno’s BBQ beginning at 5:30pm. There will be music, raffle prizes, along with wine tasting and dinner. Tickets will be $25 a piece and $60 for a family.
