First bike fest benefits Barksdale

The first annual South Central Bike Fest, held recently in Chase City,  proved to be successful for those in attendance, but more so one of the beneficiaries of the proceeds from the event — one being the Barksdale Cancer Foundation in Charlotte County. Organizers said in a press release that “without the support of numerous sponsors, volunteers and participants, this first event would not have been successful.” Pictured, Jill Duncan, right, presents part of the proceeds to Wendy Lankford, president of the Barksdale Foundation.
