The Gold Star family of late Wheatfield resident Army Spc. Alan N. Dikcis held a basket auction to benefit the nonprofit Western New York Heroes Inc. during the final Motorcycle Cruise Night of the summer Sept. 11 at VOZ Cycle City, 3287 Niagara Falls Blvd., in Wheatfield. According to organizers, more than 140 baskets and gift cards were raffled off, raising more than $1,300 for Heroes, which assists veterans and returning U.S. military persons.
"We had a great crowd. It was a huge success. Those guys did an awesome job," said VOZ owner Terry Vosburgh. (photos by Thomas Cannuli)
