One of Carousel Fund Casino Night's goals is to help teen injured in Lake Tahoe diving accident

Danny Cox, the Petaluma teenager who was paralyzed Aug. 10 in a Lake Tahoe diving accident, got a standing ovation at his homecoming Saturday at the annual Carousel Fund Casino Night.

Wearing a black athletic suit, Cox rolled his wheelchair onto the stage at the Petaluma Veterans Memorial Building as hundreds of guests in evening gowns and tuxedos cheered and clapped.

"We love you Danny," yelled one guest.

Cox smiled and said only a few words.

"Thank you to Arnie for everything he's done for me," he said. "Have a great night everybody."
