Hideout-Harley Davidson owner throws benefit for friend in need

News

A local business owner was helping out a close friend Saturday.

Hideout Harley-Davidson owner Steve Lippert held a benefit for Mike “Outlaw Mike” Letts.

Letts is mobility chair-bound, and is in need of a new van to help him get around.

The benefit featured food, live music, and a silent auction.

To see residents come out to support Letts means a lot to both the staff at Hideout-Harley and Letts’ family.

Lippert says, “[It] warms my heart, I’ll tell you right now. It really does cause we really want to help Mike and his family. He is a good man.”

Jason Letts, Mike’s brother, says, “By having a new, reliable transportation it’ll help Mike tremendously. You know, during the summer time he’s not burning up, in the winter time he’s not freezing. Mike’s been through a lot, and he’s deserves something to get him back on the road.”

The goal for today’s event was $8,000.
