PARK CITY, UT (Aug. 30) – Bryan Fletcher (Steamboat Springs, CO), who makes his training home in Park City, is partnering with Red Banjo Pizza on Park City's Main Street to host an autograph party to help fight cancer Thursday (Sept. 2). The public is welcomed from 5:00-7:00 p.m. to meet Fletcher and some of his Olympic medal-winning teammates. Proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

According to Fletcher, Red Banjo will match the money raised to make donations all that much more worthwhile.

"Since we have the dollar bill wall up at the Banjo, they have agreed to match the money raised," said Fletcher. "I think it will be pretty cool and we appreciate their support."

The 'dollar bill wall' is a section at the Red Banjo where people have been pinning dollar bills. Each year the money is collected and donated to charity. This year the wall is helping Fletcher raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

The U.S. Nordic Combined Ski Team made history in Vancouver, winning four medals including silver in the team event, plus a pair of individual silvers for Johnny Spillane (Steamboat Springs, CO) and gold for Park City resident Billy Demong (Vermontville, NY).

In addition to the opportunity to get autographs from the Olympic medalists Demong and Brett Camerota (Park City, UT), Olympian Taylor Fletcher (Steamboat Springs, CO), Eric Camerota (Park City, UT), Nick Hendrickson (Park City, UT) and Brett Denney (Steamboat Springs, CO) fans can also take advantage of special discounts from Red Banjo.
