Though the main event was a Poker Run to raise funds for the 5th grade JSES student, members of Taylor’s family and other supporters also sold t-shirts in Taylor’s favorite colors—lime green and purple—that read, “Fight Like Taylor.” Other supporters were on site serving food and refreshments as well.

One of the event’s organizers and a member of the JSES faculty, Debra Brumfield, told iSurf News that she believed over 300 people had already registered and/or donated to Taylor by approximately 12:15pm. There were also around 30 motorcycles that participated in the Poker Run, which ran as far as Henderson.

Though Taylor was present at the event, she had to keep her distance from the crowds as contact with even the smallest bacteria or sickness could potentially worsen her condition considerably. However, yours truly was lucky enough to meet the intelligent, kind, and pretty young lady, and would again like to send her and her family the best of luck in the future.

Even if you didn’t get a chance to donate to Taylor and her family today, you can drop by 1st United Bank in Madisonville, KY with your contributions anytime in the near future. All you have to do is pay a visit to the bank and ask to make a donation to the Taylor Patterson Fund. The first 100 people that donate a minimum of $10 will also be entered in a drawing for a chance to win a free photo session with Herring Photography. However, you must ask to be entered into the drawing while making your donation to be eligible.
