HopeFest Cancelled Due to Unhealthy Air Quality
Raffle and Event will be Rescheduled
(Carson City, Nev-) HopeFest, Carson Tahoe Health’s outdoor concert to support local cancer patients, has been cancelled due to a “very unhealthy” air quality designation by the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection. This is due to the extremely elevated amounts of particulate matter in the air from the wildfires burning in California, mainly the Rim Fire near Yosemite National Park.
HopeFest and the raffle for a new car or $10,000 will be rescheduled within the next 30 days. Event updates will be available at www.carsontahoe.com/Hopefest or by calling (775) 445-5161.
Carson Tahoe Health recommends that community members:
- Stay inside
- Refrain from exercising outdoors
- Don’t use vacuums or gas stoves
- Keep windows and doors closed
- When driving your car in smoky areas, keep your windows and vents closed, make sure it’s set to recirculate so you’re not bringing in outside air.
