BE A HERO FOR KIDS
Zachary Solis, owner of Quantum Computing Services, tells us he is partnering with local resident Ashley Trussell who is a participant in the Children’s Miracle Network Extra Life Play Games’ Heal Kids, fifth annual gaming day. On Nov. 2, Trussell will be playing games for 25 hours to raise money for the Renown Children’s Hospital in Reno. Her goal is to raise $200 for the cause. Solis tells us he’ll donate up to $50 off his labor fees on behalf of each computer repair customer directly to the organization. He’ll quote you the cost of the labor, and you can let him know how much you want to sponsor Ashley Trussell for.
“Growing up in Susanville I’ve watched many children with illnesses receive life-saving treatments at Renown, and so I wanted to help my friend reach her goal and support a great cause,” said Solis.
If you don’t need any computer repair services but still want to make a donation, go to Extra-Life.org and you can put in Ashley Trussell’s name under participants to support her efforts.
Leslie Farley, principal at Mt. Lassen Charter School, tells us they are hosting an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. next Tuesday, Oct. 15. You’re invited to visit them at their new location, 450 Cedar St. in Susanville. There will be fun activities for children, snacks and games. You'll be able to tour their building, and meet their dedicated staff. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to check out their facilities. For more information, call them at 252-4313.
