‘˜Hambone’ throwdown draws a crowd and raises over $8000

A July 4 fundraiser for Stan ‘˜Hambone’ Hamrick at the VFW Post July 4 drew a large crowd and raised over $8000 for Hamrick who is battling cancer. ’We counted $8638 at the end of the day. That includes what we collected at the VFW but not what people came up and stuffed in Stan’s pocket,’ noted Junior Hamrick, VFW post commander and Hambone’s father. The guest of honor was astride his Harley and led the Poker Run which drew over 60 bikers for a ride to Yatesville and Culloden and back. When the sun set, the VFW treated a huge crowd of onlookers to a 45-minute fireworks display. ‘We spent about $2000 on fireworks,’ Junior Hamrick said. The events of the day included dart poker, a casting contest and a sumptuous lunch. Also on the agenda was the first annual Hambone Texas Hold-em Tournament which will become an annual July 4 event as will the Poker Run.
