A benefit dinner and silent auction on Saturday is helping to raise money for a local man who was diagnosed with melanoma.
Travis Ames was diagnosed with stage 3c melanoma at the age of 34. He has undergone one procedure and two surgeries and will continue to undergo treatments in Utah for the next year.
The benefit goes from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday, March 10th at the Green River Eagles building, 88 N. 2nd Street in Green River. It includes a chili dinner and silent auction.
Entrance is $8 for adults and $5 for children.
Silent auction items include four quilts, a Denver Broncos helmet signed by John Elway, and items donated by local merchants.
Chili will be served by Green River Boy Scouts.
Western Wyoming Beverages donated soft drinks to be served at the event.
Funds raised will help Ames with travel and medical expenses.
