The Dillon Dam Brewery is holding a benefit for Doug Lind on Wednesday from 6-10 p.m. Admission includes live music from Arnie J. Green and Askimbo, one free pint, pasta bar and a raffle ticket.
Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for kids 17 and under, and kids under 5 are free.
The party also has a raffle and silent auction which includes a Never Summer Snowboard, skis from Christy Sports, 2 nights lodging from ResortQuest Breckenridge Lodging and more. All proceeds go directly to Lind to help him with medical expenses.
Doug Lind, who has lived in the High Country since 1997, suffered a massive heart attack, followed by a paralyzing stroke in June.
He has worked since opening day in February 1997 at the Dillon Dam Brewery and as a massage therapist at the Grand Victorian Day Spa and Salon since it opened its doors in 2003.
If anyone would like to donate money to Lind to help defray his medical costs, the Dillon Dam Brewery has set up a For Benefit of Doug Lind Account, and donations can be made at any Alpine Bank in Colorado.
The stroke had left Lind paralyzed on his left side, however, he is currently undergoing intensive physical therapy and is now walking with a cane.
An avid hiker, mountain biker and snowboarder, Lind shared, “I’m doing good and giving two thumbs up.” He plans to attend the benefit.

The Prospector Restaurant closed it's doors on Monday September 1st after 30 years in business.
Owner Darryl Lee doesn't think that Breckenridge will see another restaurant like this anytime soon. He reflects on serving breakfast to generations of locals.
"I've had kids who said they ate their first pancake here," he said. 'And now they are adults with kids."
"This place is adorable. All rustic-mined themed. The building is over 100 years old with tons of history and some great articles on the wall for additional information. Food was great," wrote one reviewer on trip advisor.
Although it won't be the same as the Prospector visit Day Light Donuts or Blue Moon Bakery across from Main Street Station for some great grub to start your day.
