Rocky Wildfong Benefit At Jimmy’s Roadhouse Saturday 12-4pm
If you are unacquainted with the man, Rocky Wildfong is a Newaygo County Corrections Officer who was in a major vehicle accident while on his motorcycle resulting in multiple injuries including the loss of his left leg above the knee. He is currently at Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.
Obviously Rocky is a popular guy since the fundraising benefit for him being held at Jimmy’s Roadhouse from Noon to 4pm Saturday has generated a veritable outpouring of donations from a huge number of sources.
There will be a BBQ lunch buffet outside including: hot dogs, burger and a bbq platter: pulled pork, bbq chicken, potato salad and baked beans. You can also order off the menu inside the restaurant. Jimmy’s is also donating part of the proceeds from their food and drink sales.
This is a family friendly event with activities including face painting for the little ones, horseshoes, cornhole and all to be enjoyed in the ample outside area adjoining Jimmy’s.
50/50 drawings, Silent and Chinese auctions, some higher end items for a ticket auction and a DJ spinning tunes will also be part of this effort by friends to help the family with the expenses that accompany lengthy hospital stays.
The folks putting this together have done it right and this should be a great event with the weather looking to be outstanding.
And if you are a biker? One who has experienced the dangers of sharing the road with much bigger automobiles and drivers not always tuned into the oncoming presence of motorcycles?
And if you’ve ever had a family member or other loved one who required lengthy medical care far from home?
Stop in, take a gander at some very cool items for bid and grab a BBQ or toss a round of cornhole.
Because once you see the compassion and the commitment of the folks putting this event together to help their friend?
