An idea for a birthday party for Mike Beneke of Lincolnville has morphed into a fundraising event in memory of the late Konley Harding of Burdick. The 21-year-old man was killed Oct. 27 in a hit-and-run accident east of Manhattan.
A dinner of smoked beef, mountain oysters, and fried fish will be served by donation from 5 to 7 p.m. Saturday at Lincolnville Community Center.
Following the dinner, those who wish to do so will meet at Bailey’s Tavern for a Texas Hold’em tournament and socializing.
Beneke said the Harding family has requested that all money raised be donated to the Konley Harding Memorial 4-H Scholarship Fund.
For future donations or information, contact Beneke at (620) 924-5712 or Dan Peterson at (785) 983-4353.
