Re: Dozers & Dirt Fundraiser 2020 Canceled Due to COVID 19

It is with great sadness that we announce the Dozers & Dirt fundraiser benefiting Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation (NNCCF), has been canceled due to COVID 19. The committee hoped we could hold the event later in the summer but out of abundance of caution for all attendees it has been canceled.

The committee is working diligently on next year's event and we look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, June 5, 2021.

Dozers & Dirt (brought to you by the former committee of the Reno Big Dig) has been a staple in our community for 20 years and with your generous support we have raised more than $1 million dollars in the fight against pediatric cancer.

NNCCF has provided more than $5.3 million in direct financial assistance to local children battling cancer - all through locally raised funding. For twenty years, NNCCF has been the only nonprofit in the region solely dedicated to childhood cancer. NNCCF continues to assist local childhood cancer families through the generosity of "Community Partners" and fundraisers like Dozers & Dirt.

Please visit NNCCF website or the Dozers and Dirt event on our Facebook page for updates.

We truly appreciate your thoughtful consideration of our cause and hope that you continue to support Dozers & Dirt for many more years to come. If you wish to donate to Dozers & Dirt or receive additional information, please contact Jared Hosefros at (775) 742-2203. NNCCF is a non-profit organization, 501(c)(3) No. 20-8623503.
