RENO — More than $55,000 was raised on Feb. 29 during CARE Chest of Sierra Nevada’s 21st annual Executive Kidnap fundraising event.

Thirty local businessmen and businesswomen were “kidnapped” and contacted friends and business associates to solicit “ransom,” while enjoying table games, food, beverages and prizes.

The 11 participating individuals, along with teams from NV Energy, Renown Health, First Independent Bank, American Family Insurance, Old Bridge Pub, Legends, Java Jungle and Umpqua Bank raised money that will be used to provide free medical services to local children and adults. The NV Energy team raised the most funds overall, but Art Kess of New York Life garnered that distinction among individual participants.
