On Saturday, June 22, an accident between a motorcyclist and a dog left the dog dead and, even worse, left the biker and his passenger with some serious injuries. The passenger was able to escape with road rash injuries but the driver was not as lucky. 32-year-old Cory Curtis of Kennewick was taken to Kadlec Medical Center with a couple broken bones and a serious head injury. He is currently in a coma fighting for his life.

Cory not only needs your prayers, thoughts and positives vibes, but his friends are looking to raise funds to help out Cory and his family. You can show your support for this local rider by attending or donating to Cory's benefit event, tentatively planned for Saturday, July 20.

Currently, items are needed for the raffle and silent auction. If you would like to donate any kind of art, merchandise or services please contact Danny Perez, Jeff Curtis, or Shane DeWeber.
