WILLOW WOOD — The Symmes Valley school district and community will conduct a “Bucks for Bill” benefit dinner and auction Friday prior to the Vikings’ home football game against McDermott Northwest.

Bill Nance, a junior at the high school, was diagnosed with melanoma cancer this past summer and will soon begin treatment. He will be in Pittsburgh for four weeks and the district is trying to raise money to defer expenses.

A dinner will be held in the cafeteria from 5-7 p.m. with the auction beginning at 6 p.m.
