Hawkins Countians looking for something to do on the Fourth of July weekend can now have fun while benefitting a child in need.

The July 3 benefit fundraiser at Sayrah Barn in Surgoinsville has been organized to support young Ellison Wilson, who was diagnosed with a Choroid Plexus Brain Tumor.

“This is a great opportunity for individuals and families to come out for a day of fun while supporting this beautiful child and his family,” said organizer Christina Bellamy.

Concessions will be for sale, and a silent/dollar auction with fabulous prizes from local businesses and individuals will be held.

There will be dashboard plates for the first 50 registrants and three trophies awarded for each class. Registration is $10 per vehicle.

Registration for car/motorcycle/ tractor shows are from 4-6 p.m. Music will start at 5 p.m.

“What a way to start off the 4th of July holiday and you can end it with a trip to the fireworks on the 4th,” Bellamy added.

All proceeds will go directly to the Wilson family.
