Fundraiser for Zack Towers slated for Jan. 26

A fundraiser will be held from 1 p.m to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Dumas Community Center to benefit Zack Towers, the Star City High School football player who remains in a coma after being injured in a game last season.

Special guests at the fundraiser will be Jackie “The Texas Snakeman” Bibby and Vickie Sherrill from the cast of the Animal Planet show “Rattlesnake Republic.”

There will be a demonstration with live snakes and a chance to touch a non-poisonous snake and have pictures taken with the snake and/or the cast.

A live auction of items donated by the local merchants and refreshments will be offered.

Donations of $10 for adults and $5 for children will be taken at the door. All proceeds will go to the Towers family to help with medical expenses.
