Help GetARide4Ry @ Margaux’s Restaurant 10/21/16

On Friday, October 21st, 2016, join us for an evening of music with the local Raleigh band, “Funk Sandwich”, while bidding on awesome silent auction/raffle items.

On July 17, 2016, 19 year old, Ryley Hopper (Leesville Road HS graduate & UNC-Wilmington student) suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury in a terrible swimming pool accident. He dove into a pool head first not realizing the depth was only five feet and burst fractured his C6 vertebrae becoming immediately paralyzed from the chest down. He is currently undergoing intensive inpatient rehabilitation at the world renowned spinal cord injury hospital, the Shepherd Center in Atlanta, GA and hopes to return back to Raleigh in the weeks/months to come.

Recovering from a spinal cord injury is not easy; it takes strong commitment, patience, and financial resources. Even with health insurance, there are so many expenses to consider including accessible transportation, access to specialized therapies/technologies, home modifications, durable medical equipment, medical supplies and caregiver expenses.

The monies raised from the October 21st event will be used to help the Hoppers acquire a specially equipped vehicle, “ARide4Ry”, to allow transport of Ryley to doctor’s appointments, physical & occupational therapy visits and general activities of a 19-year-old.

Friends, family and friends that we have not met yet PLEASE join us! Band starts at 10pm but feel free to come early to browse the many auction & raffle items.
