Spaghetti feed Sunday to benefit Robertson


There will be a spaghetti feed and silent auction from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday to raise funds for Daniel Robertson. The local resident and Nevada Union High School grad became paralyzed from the waist down in a motorcycle accident on Highway 49 near Placerville.

Sunday’s event will raise funds to help outfit Robertson’s house, said organizer Mimi Simmons.

Insurance doesn’t cover the costs modifications to his living space to accommodate a wheelchair — such as a ramp to the door and kitchen design.

“We want to give Daniel the ability to continue on living independently,” Simmons said.

The Robertson family owns businesses in the area and has given a lot to the community through the years. This is a chance for the community to give back to the family, she added.

Robertson has a great attitude and is a good kid, Simmons said.

He is currently in rehabilitation in Roseville.

Tickets for Sunday’s spaghetti feed and silent auction are $10. It will be at the Nevada City Elks Lodge, 518 Highway 49 in Nevada City.

For information or to help, contact Simons at 530-362-0010 or by email at Mimi@mimisimmons.com.
