Harley Davidson riders joined together for a poker run Saturday to raise funds for the veterans memorial in gage park. Jim Brothers is the artist behind the memorial and says freedom is not free and we musn't forget the fallen soldiers.
The sculpture represents all soldiers past and present. The money raised today will help fund the one hundred thousand dollar project.
"Jim agreed to make the statues for the rest of the war for us.....we're gonna do what we can to finish it. " said Rants Sackrider, Vice President of the North East Kansas Korean War Memorial association.
