Event to boost food backpacks

A benefit motorcycle ride, Cruisin’ for Unicoi County Kids, will be held Saturday, Sept. 24. All proceeds from this benefit ride will go to Food Backpacks, which feed kids throughout the school year.
The event will begin at Unicoi County Intermediate School, 600 Mohawk Drive. Riders will meet in the parking lot for registration and donations between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m. Cash or checks will be accepted. Please make checks payable to Second Harvest Food Bank.
The tentative ride will probably include two stops. It will start and end at UCIS parking lot, cross Devil’s Fork to Hot Springs, on to Greeneville, through Jonesborough and back to Erwin. Riders will stop at Toby’s Cafe on Carolina Avenue for lunch.
Toby will be donating $1 per meal for backpacks.
For more information or preregistration, call Sherry Whitson, 743-7820 or 330-8034, or Miss Lynn, 743-1689 or 330-4373.
