Concert Fundraiser for Dental Program, Metzker Family

Posted: Updated:

This weekend you can have the chance to watch a Grammy-award winning band while helping children and veterans receive low-cost dental care.

"We want this thing to grow every year, not just for our our sake but for the community's sake because the more money we raise the more kids we can take care of and the more vets we can take care of," says Dr. Joseph Eberle.

The fifth annual Jason Eberle Memorial fundraiser is this Saturday at the Silver Legacy and will feature a performance by The Mavericks.

Doors open at 7pm and the concert starts at 8pm.

The money raised benefits the Northern Nevada Dental Health Program, a non-profit founded in honor of Jason Eberle, a pedatric dentist who passed away in 2008.

Emberle was the step-brother of our long-time sports director JK Metzker, who was hit and killed in 2011. JK's wife Jaimie passed away this January after a long battle with cancer.

All tips collected for drinks will be donated to the Metzker family to help their sons Tommy, Tanner and Luke.

Tickets are $60 per person and include complimentary beer and wine.
