Just a few short weeks ago, Lynchburg lost a little angel whose time on earth was brief but whose impact in this small, rural community was strong.
Molly Mae Hankins lost her battle with a rare form of infant cancer on April 11 after just four short months with her family.
Now community members continue to support her as they plan the Riding for Molly Poker Run. The event takes place on June 3 and begins at Bumpus Harley-Davidson in Murfreesboro and will end at the Blue Gill Grill on Tims Ford Lake. Other stops include the Bell Buckle Gazebo, Yo My Goodness in Tullahoma and Lynchburg Harley-Davidson.
The cost is $10 per hand and $5 for an additional hand. Prizes will be given for the best and worst hand. Best hand wins a $150 Harley-Davison gift card.
Registration begins at 10 a.m. and the first bike will roll out at 11 a.m. Bikes will roll into the Blue Gill around 3 p.m., where there will also be a silent auction.
“One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will be given to Molly’s parents to help with expenses from medical bills [acquired] during Molly’s treatment,” say event organizers.
For more information or to make a donation for the silent auction, contact Emily Kimbro at (256) 874-7475 or Tiffany and Ryan Bates at (931) 581-7356. •
