Press release submitted by Lisa Wille

On Saturday, October 13, 2012, there will be a fundraiser benefit Poker Run for Rylan D. Foster, four-year-old son of Daniel and Sarah Foster of Orion, who passed away July 30 while awaiting a heart transplant. He had been in a fight for his life, since May 17, 2012. His parents were alongside him during the whole process, while suffering a complete loss of income. The medical bills are astronomical, and they need your help.

The Poker Run is an event that has been planned to help raise money for them. It starts at Jeronimo's in Reynolds, Il at 9:00 AM (last rider out @ 11:30 AM) with biscuits and gravy breakfast included with your $10/rider fee. Participants are encouraged to take part in the "Ride For Rylan" in not only motorcycles, but cars and trucks, too! The destinations are: Ducky's, Andalusia; Jim's Knoxville Tap, Milan; Mulligan's, Coal Valley; Stooges, Orion; Krusteez, Matherville; City Limits, Viola, and then back to Jeronimo's (last rider in @ 5:30 PM), where there will be a donation steak supper, silent auction with awesome items, 50/50 drawing, door prizes, tshirt sales, and raffle tickets sold for a 1964 Ford Cobra Roadster Replica (drawing to be held Nov. 14). Non-riders are encouraged to join in any time all day long @ Jeronimo's, to enter for door prizes given all day, and to join in the fun and show your support for little Rylan's family.

Please join us, and feel free to call Rylan's great Aunt and Uncle, Lisa and Mark Wille, organizers of the event, for more information @ (309)738-7193. Please become a member of TEAM RYLAN!!! To infinity and beyond................
