Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Matt Lope, a town of Dillon employee, was critically injured recently when the car he was riding in was rear-ended by a van traveling at a very high rate of speed. Lope has extensive injuries and was placed in a medically induced coma, from which he emerged early last week. A benefit concert and silent auction will be held on Friday, Sept. 12, at the Dillon Amphitheater to help offset Lope’s medical expenses. The benefit will run from 3:30 to 7 p.m., and local musicians including Randall McKinnon, Keith Synnestved and Amy & The Rock Sisters will perform.
