05.19.13 Fundraiser for Bruce Hemmingway
On the evening of April 12th, Bruce and his buddy Tim Croom, were in a tragic motorcycle accident. Both men survived, but Bruce suffered severe damage to many of his vertebrae leaving the doctors with little hope that he will walk again.
There will be a fundraiser for Bruce on May 19th at Rudino's Pizza & Grinders, Parkside (4022 Village Park Drive, Knightdale, North Carolina 27545) starting at 2:00p.m. The evening will include several events such as a raffle and a silent auction. Additionally, there will be music, corn hole tournaments, carnival games, and $7 BBQ plates.
The goal of the event is to not only raise funds to cover Bruce’s medical expenses, but to raise awareness of the importance of motorcycle safety. We are asking for support of other motorcycle enthusiasts. This event is open to the public and is family friendly.
Please join us on May 19th to raise funds for Bruce and shed light on the importance of sharing the road.
