On Saturday the North Country Hardship Fund will host Waynestock III in North Creek.
The Post-Star has a good explanation of the event and what led up to it:
>JOHNSBURG – On April 18, 2008, Wayne Bukovinsky’s life changed.
>That’s when he lost control of his 2001 Harley Davidson Electra Glide Classic motorcycle on Golf Course Road, about 1.2 miles north of Blackberry Lane in Warrensburg, and ended up being thrown from the bike and losing his helmet.
>He wound up unconscious on the ground and was flown to Albany Medical Center, where he was listed in critical condition just after the crash, according to a Post-Star report from 2008.
>More than two years after his traumatic brain injury, Bukovinsky’s speech is slurred and he walks with a cane, but that hasn’t stopped him from trying to help others the way they helped him after his accident.
Wayne’s been with Creative’s Rental and Production department almost since the beginning. After his accident he started the non-profit North Country Hardship Fund:
>As a way of giving back to the community, Wayne has started this organization to raise funds for others that may be in need as he was. Your donation and support for this wonderful cause will be greatly appreciated. The region covered by this fund will include Warren, Essex, Hamilton, Washington and Saratoga counties in New York.
Waynestock III will be held at the North Creek Ski Bowl starting tomorrow, August 7, at noon. There’s no charge, but donations will be accepted.
The following local bands will be there:
– Vinnie Leddick
– Blonde Roots
– S.L. Smith Band
– Phil Camp
– Don’t Quit Your Day Jobbers
– Donna Britton Band
– Finger Diddle
– Dogtown Cadillac
– Groove Therapy
– Hoffmeister/Keystone Band.
