In 2009 we heard about a benefit that was being held in Pahrump Nevada "Bikers Giving Back" for a servicemember injured in Afghanistan. Three of us, myself Rick Hillis owner of Motorcycle Trike Toys, Bob McManus and John Stratton rode over to support this benefit. When we returned we were so taken by this experience that we decided to do more for this servicemember Michael Araujo. Soon after plans were being made to create our own benefit for Michael. We tossed ideas around and with a lot of volunteer help from a lot of people and groups such as the Desert Few M/C, Warrior Brotherhood VMC, U-Guys M/C, American Legion Post 149, VFW Post 3848 and many others motorcycle clubs, Veterans organizations, civilians and military personel we were on our way! We pooled our resources and started putting it together. Individuals like John Stratton building the stage, beautiful Alice Smaldino and her team of ladies organizing and collecting prizes for the raffles, Chick Smaldino (Updog) organizing the bands, producing the show and providing sound and lighting. We then needed a name! We were talking about calling it "An American Hero" when Alice said "let's do this every year for ONE HERO AT A TIME". And the name for this event was born! In September of 2010 we had our first One Hero at a Time benefit. It was a huge success for Michael Aroujo and his family! So we did it again in October of 2011 for Timothy Hall and his family. Timothy is a double amputee and was also injured in Afghanistan. Once again a great success. Now we are very proud to announce our 3rd annual "One Hero at a Time" servicemember is Sgt. Thomas "Trey" HumphreyIII. This years event will be held Saturday October 20th at the Jokers Wild Casino here in Henderson Nevada. We welcome your support in raising as much money as we possibly can for Trey and his family. And to personally say THANK YOU! 100% of funds go to Trey and his family!!!! If you are thinking about putting on you own benefit for a servicemember in your area we absolutely encourage you to do so! It takes a lot of planning, patience and volunteers. When you succeed the rewards for everyone involved are immeasurable.If you are unable to attend the benefit you can still help by donating to sgt Humphrey and his family , just click the fundrazor button.Thank you for support of our Hero !
