Bikers from the Lone Wolf No Club in Hannibal held its annual Shiloh Fish Fry Saturday evening.
This is the 13th year the group has raised funds for Shiloh Christian Children's Ranch. Shiloh is a safe haven for abused and neglected children. It operates soley on donations and does not receive any government assistance.
Throughout the year, many biker groups like Lone Wolf give to its cause. In its first year, the group donated about $400. In recent years, that number has grown to more than $15,000.
"It does my heart good to see a big ole' rainy day like today and it seems like we're going to have a pretty good crowd. So, I'm very, very glad about that and just hope everybody comes in and has a good time," Tony Galluzio with Lone Wolf said.
"There's a lot of good people in this area. They really try to come out and help us.That's basically what we're trying to do, to give to people who are less fortunate," Kevin Mcleod with Lone Wolf said.
The money from each fundraiser is donated to Shiloh on the first Saturday in November during the annual Shiloh Ride to the facility in Clarence, Missouri. During that time, various organizations, motorcycle clubs and individuals ride to deliver donations and to visit with the families at Shiloh.
