Established in 2014 in Sulphur Springs, the Midnight Riders Motorcycle Club of Sulphur Springs likes giving back to the community. That’s why they have planned their third-annual Illness Rally for Hopkins County for Saturday May 14 at Highwayman Ink, 1783 State Highway 19, south of Sulphur Springs. Events will begin at noon and will include motorcycle games with prizes, retail vendor booths, live bands, bounce houses, dunking booth, auctions and several food vendors. Again this year, one of the most popular attractions will be the “Demolition Smash” which, for a small fee you can take several swings with a sledgehammer at a donated vehicle that’s headed for a salvage yard. Cost to enter the gate is $10 per adult, $15 per 2 adults, and free for kids 12 and under. The day’s events are family-friendly and biker-friendly, offering fun and activities for everyone.
All proceeds will go to the two local individuals selected for this year’s benefit. Karen Phillips, age 60 is suffering from four types of cancer. Lauren Hill age 26 is a single mom suffering with Leukemia. Both are undergoing treatments, and incurring medical and travel expenses weekly.
