My trip out to Prairie Knights last Friday afternoon was spent unwinding from a busy week, my trip BACK was GLORIOUS

I'll tell you why, besides all the amazing people at Prairie Knights like Sid Carry Moccasin and Chuck Murphy, and the rest of their staff, I came across some wonderful folks with hearts of gold. After talking with them for about 20 minutes I found out that George Thorogood himself had arranged to have a nonprofit organization group brought out to the casino lobby - to raise money for cancer. His wife Marla passed away back in 2019 from Ovarian cancer.

Say hello to Glenda, Ron, Lorie, Bruce, Lois, Juana, and Neva - these awesome people are from Community Kicking cancer
