LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Two upcoming benefits will benefit local men battling cancer.
Dwight Hoyle is the assistant chief of the North 321 Volunteer Fire Department. The department will hold a benefit barbecue this Saturday, March 23, at the station house at 3769 Maiden Hwy. in Lincolnton. The event starts 10:30 a.m. and will run until the barbecue is gone.
“So come early!” as the firefighters recently reminded the public.
Plates are $10 each and will feature barbecue, baked beans, slaw, a roll and a dessert. Dine-in and carry-out options are available. Delivery is available for orders of five plates or more within a 10-mile radius. A farther distance on large orders will be considered.
According to fire department spokesman Tom Bivens, Hoyle is a 25-year veteran of the department. And for more than 30 years, he has delivered home heating oil for the Rhodes & Beal Oil Company.
“He’s also a good friend of mine,” Bivens added, continuing that Hoyle was recently diagnosed with cancer, and the barbecue will help defray his medical expenses.
To learn more about the barbecue benefit, call the fire department at (704) 735-5797.
Help for Brian Greer
And many local folks know Brian Greer as the proprietor of City Lunch in downtown Lincolnton.
Also a big motorcycle enthusiast, he is a well-known figure in the community he loves and that loves him back, and both he and his restaurant are local institutions.
According to family members, Greer has fourth-stage cancer, affecting his lungs and kidneys. There are two “Go Fund Me” pages set up for him.
Also happening this Saturday, there will be a benefit pancake breakfast for Greer. Coaches from West Lincoln and Lincolnton high schools are coming together to help their mutual friend with the event at Fatz in Lincolnton, 7-10:30 a.m. The cost is $10 per person. Tickets are available in the main office of each school, or you may contact Victor David Avery on Facebook.
“While God only knows what is in store for Brian,” said Avery, “we know that together, we can help him along the way.”
And a cornhole tournament, May 4 at 11 a.m., will be held at Quillie’s Bar in Lincolnton. Hot dog plates will be available, as well as a silent auction, a 50-50 drawing and more.
Daughter Brittany Greer recently gave the public an update. She acknowledged the massive expenses of her father’s care.
“We have a long road of recovery ahead of us,” Miss Greer said, “and anything would help us during this time.”
