special haunted “Wizard of Oz/Dark Side of the Moonshine” benefit concert raises thousands of dollars for community chest programs!


Community Chest held its most successful ever fundraising concert on October 28th, 2016, raising thousands of dollars for the Storey County (Renegade) Library and the Classroom on Wheels (COW Bus) mobile preschool program!

The hottest Halloween show of the year in Virginia City was definitely a night to remember at Piper’s Opera House. We sold out at the door, saw the most amazing costumes, and danced the night away to Poor Man’s Whiskey and Jelly Bread. The concert was such a success that we’re making this an annual event! If you couldn’t make it to this amazing show, we’ll see you next year!

Grateful thanks to our event co-sponsors Barrick, Cafe del Rio, and the Red Dog Saloon.
