Benefit for Steamboat resident Mary Stone is Monday

Mary Stone is home in Steamboat Springs, off oxygen for the first time since 2005 and recovering nicely from a double lung transplant in July necessitated by the severity of her cystic fibrosis.

Stone’s friends are planning a chili dinner and live auction with live music from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at Library Hall at Bud Werner Memorial Library to help defray her ongoing medical expenses. There is a suggested donation of $10.

Wild Card will perform danceable music. People who prefer to do so may take their dinner in a go-carton on the way to the football game, for example.

Volunteers will be selling tickets and accepting donations in front of City Market from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday, or stop by Heritage Christian School. It’s also possible to donate online through the nonprofit HELPHOPELIVE at

Stone entered the hospital in April and continues to make bimonthly trips to Denver for checkups. She is going for walks and riding a four-wheeler but cannot be around groups of people or anyone who may be sick.
