All proceeds will benefit Mark Robinson, a friend and member of the Hanging Rock ATV club.

Robinson went outside Wednesday, Jan. 7, around 9:45 p.m. to investigate a noise outside his home. He walked out close to the road on State Route 650 in Hanging Rock and was allegedly shot in the back by a neighbor.

Robinson is currently in Cabell Huntington Hospital awaiting surgery to remove the bullet. He has been a member of the club since it was formed in 2007.

Robinson loves to ride his ATV, play in the mud, and go on outings with other members of the ATV club, club president Jerry Gammon said.

“Mark has been instrumental in helping set up the Rock ‘N Roll rallies in Hanging Rock, currently serving as team leader for vendor contacts for this year’s rally set for May 29, 30, and 31.”

A fund has been set up to benefit Robinson.
