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.
