A local resident, Alice Marker, was diagnosed with cancer and her friends and family held a benefit poker run for her in June. Alice said that she had insurance and her bills were being paid and she wanted all proceeds to go to the cancer association to benefit local cancer patients.

The ride was 108 miles and along with it were raffles, door prizes, music with Amanda Livingston, Frohna and Warner and Renegade RailRoad. A meal was also provided.

The association wants to thank the Tail Gators and Alice for their generosity toward the patients battling the serious illness of cancer.

The Tail Gators state they want to do this each year and donate to the association. The association is most grateful for this and all donations. It exists to provide financial benefits, nutritional support and emotional support to local cancer victims. CADC is local and partners with United Way. It is not affiliated with the American Cancer Society.

“Where there is help, there is hope.”
