The Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club Dirty South Chapter sponsored the inaugural Rock N Ride 4 Hope Charity Ride & Jam all day Saturday.
Dozens of motorcycle riders met at the Lee Pub, enjoyed a live band, silent auction, a raffle, and riding around Albany.
The group is raising money for Donald Bass who's waiting for a liver transplant at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida.
Tracy McClure is Bass TMs daughter and says she TMs appreciative of the fundraiser because the cost involved with the transplant is astronomical. When you add up the transplant, hospital stay, doctors TM visits, apartment they have to stay in for two weeks, even with health insurance the cost is out of this world. After the transplant the medication alone will be $1500 a month says McClure.
Kevin "Moose" McNeese, President of the Iron Warriors Dirty South says the group was happy to help out when they found out about Donald Bass through one of their riders. This is such a great cause to raise money for. One of our riders " Scott McClure TMs father in law is in need so we said we TMll step up to the plate and raise money. The event also gives us the opportunity to bond with the other motorcycle clubs in the area while raising money says McNeese.
