Hometown Heroes To Helen Back Road Tour Kickoff

To stand up on behalf of the children. These young people remind us that our faith beckons us to aid the weakest of our community and to make their fight, our fight.

We were proud to be the official host to throw the big kickoff event for The Hometown Heroes To Helen Back Road Tour annual event to help raise money for the kids with cancer that Hometown Heroes sponsors. Hometown Heroes right now sponsors 27 kids in which they support them emotionally, physically, and monetarily … they become family. The kickoff event for this ride was held at our dealership where there was food, music, dancing, and an emotional butterfly release. Thanks to many of our sponsors we were able to handout stuffed to the brim gift bags to the children that Hometown Heroes currently sponsor. There were police & Sheriff departments from surrounding counties along with the Monroe Fire Department here to help celebrate the kids. After the event 3 of the children were escorted to their schools by Hometown Heroes and then all of the ride participants left for the weekend ride to Helen, GA. This was an amazing and emotional event that touched each and everyone of our hearts.

Jeep Night 4Wheeler 4Help – Sidney Strawn

We were so happy to support this child and her family by donating some raffle items. On June 19th, 2019, 12 year old Sidney Strawn was taken to the doctor because the right side of her body appeared to have shut down. She was rushed immediately to the ER and then straight to Levine. The MRI showed a 3mmX9mm mass in her brain on her thalamus. On 6/24/19 doctors operated and were able to remove as much as possible. Final diagnosis will not be known until the end of September. In the meantime, Sidney will have tests every 3-4 months to check for any changes. Her mom, Faye, had to take 6 weeks off from work to care for Sidney. She has returned to work and is trying to catch up on bills. She also has 2 other children ages 10 and 14. All proceeds raised were donated to Sidney Strawn’s family. They also asked for donations of school supplies since there are so many other children in need of the basics this time of year. Sidney was in charge of what schools the supplies go to.

Union County Crime Stoppers 27th Annual BBQ

We were proud to be a sponsor for the 27 th Annual Union County Crime Stoppers BBQ on 01/18/2019 at the Union County Ag Center. This is the only event they hold annually to support the efforts to fight crime in our county. Proceeds provide rewards for tips that enable law enforcement to solve crimes in Union County. You were able to enjoy BBQ, music, door prizes, meet Miss North Carolina, and give blood with the American Red Cross.

Crime Stoppers is based on the principal that someone other than the criminal has information that can solve a crime and was created to combat the three major problems faced by law enforcement in generating that information:

  • Fear of REPRISAL
  • An attitude of APATHY
  • Reluctance to get INVOLVED

Crime Stoppers resolves these problems by:

  • Offering ANONYMITY to people who provide information about crimes.
  • Paying REWARDS when the information supplied leads to arrest.
