An October article on Junior's House Child Advocacy Center in the Marshall County Tribune has generated a big response from the community.

Chapter 37 of the Booze Fighters Motorcycle Club read the article and decided to give Junior's House $1,000 of the proceeds from their 2nd Annual Charity Poker Run which had taken place in September, hosted in cooperation with Leonard's Outer Limits.

"These funds will be used to provide free counseling services to children who are victims of physical and sexual abuse," said Heather Warden, director of Junior's House. "We are very thankful and pleased about this donation. We are really excited about helping the BFMC with their Poker Run in 2008."

Junior's House Inc. provides a variety of services free of charge for child victims of abuse and their families, as well as health care professionals, schools and community organizations.
