According to ABC 10, Stevie Wonder performed in Davis, CA on Sunday, April 24th at a fundraiser for young ski instructor Carson May, who went missing near Sugar Bowl Resort on January 15th, 2016. Carson was found about 1/4 mile from the Sugar Bowl ski resort boundary in an avalanche prone area.  It’s very likely that he died in an avalanche on January 14th, 2016. Mike May, Carson’s Father, has been friends with Stevie since the 1980’s, they are both blind, which brings them together. Mike was blinded at the age of three in a chemical explosion, but regained part of his sight after a revolutionary (cornea) transplant and stem-cell procedure in 2000, at the age of 46.  Mike is also an avid skier. He set the world’s speed record for downhill skiing by a blind individual at 65mph. It’s great to see all of the support for Carson May’s family!
