There will be a fundraiser May 17 for the South Lake Tahoe man who sustained third-degree burns to more than 30 percent of his body in a car shop fire last month at the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency building.
Ron Svetlik, 57, has been at UC Davis Medical Center since the April 25 accident at Ron’s Auto & Small Engine Repair on the bottom floor of the Stateline office complex. He is recovering, but it will be a long road.
Casey’s in Round Hill is hosting Thursday’s fundraiser. All proceeds from chili sales will go toward Svetlik’s medical bills. A GoFundMe account has also been established. Updates on Svetlik’s progress will be posted there.
