Murray Mershon Rock and Stroll All Night Benefit

by Christy Kienast, The Quill

Saturday, July 9th was a beautiful night for the Murray Mershon Rock and Stroll All Night Benefit. The organizers of the event, mother in law/ grandmother Vicki Mershon, and local race car driver Matt Sutton, friend of the family, did a great job organizing the event.

The event was held to raise money for the education of the children of the late Murray Mershon and his wife Monica. Many family and friends came out to the Annex in La Harpe and showed their support for Monica, Nicholas, Caleb and Allison.

Great food, a BBQ dinner for donation was held, and a live and silent auction, each with numerous items was held. They also organized a bake sale and the band, the Wedgewood Brothers from Rushville was great entertainment for the evening.

With the help of many other wonderful friends and family the event was a great success.
