On May 19, Margaret Eisenhauer, broker/owner of RE/MAX North Real Estate, presented Floyd Doring with a $500 check in support of the Grand Island Father's Day Lawn Mower Race & Classic Car Show.
Doring founded the organization in 1978. In 2013, it expanded to incorporate a 5K walk and 10K run in memory of his son, Kevin Doring. The organization, which hosts the annual events on Father's Day weekend, was honored as the 2015 Organization of the Year by the Grand Island Chamber of Commerce.
The Father's Day races, the greatest spectacle in lawn mowing, will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, June 20 at 3957 West River Road between Long and Sunset roads.
