RENO, NV - The Great Basin Brewery in Sparks will host a benefit concert today starting at 1 p.m. for Mary Anne Novello-Stefani.
The event will feature seven local bands including Tazer, The Ambush Band, 12 OH5, Bandalarels, Dirk Spaldo and The Super Natural Heroes, Bunky Sholls, and special guests.
Mary Ann was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme back in 2013. Glioblastoma is a very aggressive brain tumor, and very costly to treat.
She has undergone radiation and chemotherapy and recently started a new treatment in hopes of slowing the growth of the tumor.
Mary Anne lives in Fernley and has not been able to work since last August. Funds raised will go toward her medical bills and transportation costs.
A percentage of food and beverage proceeds sold during this event will be donated. A Wells Fargo account has also been established in her name - Mary Anne Novello-Stefani Cancer Drive #3896235664.
Great Basin Brewery is at 846 Victorian Avenue in Sparks.
