A car accident changed the life of Jordanne Menzies, leaving her in a wheelchair, turning her into a quadriplegic.
Jordanne, now 25, went to Costa Rica in January of 2007 so she could receive the first in a series of stem-cell treatments. Her long term goal is to regain the use of her arms and legs.
To help her reach that goal, there's a benefit in her honor Saturday, Sept. 19 in the Fruita Civic Park. Local band Ofay Soul will perform and other activities include a live auction, raffle, a bump 'n' jump, food and more.
The gates open at 5 p.m., the concert starts at 5:30 p.m. The auction runs from 6:15 to 7 p.m. Items include an over, redwood clock, beauty supplies basket, handmade quilt and a home security system.
To buy the $5 tickets, call 361-1003,
Donations are also accepted at the downtown Alpine Bank branch and the GJ Federal Credit Union on Main Street.
