Reno 911 Throws a Party for a Local Hero

The party was also a fundraiser for New Times' favorite philanthropist, Aaron Jackson, and his charity Planting Peace. We've written about his orphanages and shelters, and his efforts to rid the world (especially children) of intestinal parasites here, here, and here.

It's good to see the good folks at Reno are helping out. I met Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon in December, at a benefit thrown by The Office's Rainn Wilson, a friend of Aaron's.

All three TV stars talked about Planting Peace in this video.

With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
