A poker run and a hog roast will be held at the Defiance AMVETS Post 1991 next Saturday, May 11 to benefit 10-month-old Nycholaas McConnell.
McConnell is the infant who lost his parents, Ashley Jenkins and Sebastian McConnell, in a house fire in Bryan at the beginning of the year. He was not injured in the fire, and is now living with his great-grandmother in the Toledo area.
Family members hope the benefit raises enough funds to help pay for college and other future expenses for the child.
The poker run will start at 10:30 next Saturday morning with the first bike out at noon. The last bike is in at 5 p.m. The meal will be served at 5 p.m. and will include a hog roast or chicken dinner with side dishes. Cost of an individual meal ticket is $5. There will be 50/50 drawings and a raffle with lots of items.
