Friends and family gathered Saturday evening of fun, music and food as part of a fundraiser for El Dorado resident Amboo Ploy.

The event was held at the Hot Rod Cafe to raise money for Ploy, a local artist and musician, who was recently diagnosed with cancer.

A number of bands and musicians, including Ploy, took the stage throughout the evening, with an auction held at 7 p.m., offering a variety of artwork and other items that had been donated.

But the events for Ploy began on Friday evening when his daughter was flown in from California for a surprise reunion between the two. United Airlines donated $100 to assist with her ticket.

Anyone wishing to send a card to Ploy can send it to him at 126 S. Poplar, El Dorado, KS 67042.
