Waynestock lends a helping hand to others

NORTH CREEK - In response to the success of last years "Waynstock," Wayne Bukovinsky is seeking to give back to the community that came to his aid by sponsoring a second annual "Waynestock" on Saturday, Aug. 15 at the Ski Bowl Pavilion.

After recovering from a near fatal motorcycle accident last April, Bukovinsky founded a non-profit organization called the North Country Hardship Fund. His NPO seeks to raise money for families who have been monetarily burdened by an unexpected medical emergency such as his.

All proceeds generated from this years "Waynestock" will go to the North Country Hardship Fund and be distributed to local families in need of assistance.

Following in the path of last years event, there will be auctions, raffles, bake sales, entertainment and opportunities for donations to be made to the cause.

"Our goal is to keep these families afloat," said Tim Ellifritz, contributing member of North Country Hardship Fund and friend of Bukovinsky.

Last year, the benefit was able to raise into five figures, and this year those involved hope to see the same success. The event is open to the public at no charge.
