The Quakes had a surprise for thirteen-year-old Nicholas Dillon last week. After he received pevic fractures from a falling chimney during the Napa earthquakes, he underwent successful surgery and is now on the road to recovery.
The club heard that Nicholas was a big soccer fan, so we decided to cheer the Napa native up with a care package full of Quakes swag. He received a signed jersey, t-shirts and soccer ball from the team.
We just can't wait to have Nicholas visit one of our games when he is fully recovered. Get well soon, Nicholas!
