The most festive event in Lucerne Valley last weekend had hundreds of people reveling in live music and enjoying tasty food and refreshments.
But the reason for the good-natured fun was sobering.
The reason for Saturday's event at the Lazy Lizard Ranch was to raise money for longtime resident Terry Moretz, who is battling stage 4 bladder cancer.
"We've raised over $5,000," said Jerry Bryant, who offered the Moretz family the use of his sprawling ranch.
