Re:          Dozers and Dirt Fundraiser Postponed

It is with great sadness that we announce the Dozers & Dirt fundraiser benefiting Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation (NNCCF), scheduled for June 6, 2020 has been postponed due to COVID 19. The committee is monitoring the situation and are hopeful we can bring Dozers & Dirt back in September.   

Dozers and 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.

Founded in 2000, NNCCF has helped more than 535 families and provided more than $4.9 million in direct financial assistance, all through locally raised funding. They can only continue to assist our local childhood cancer families through the generosity of our “Community Partners,” like you and fundraisers like Dozers and Dirt of Northern Nevada.

Please visit NNCCF website or visit Dozers and Dirt 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.
