RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — Two children who were killed in a house fire last week were honored at a community event on Saturday.
Members of the Rebel Rousers Motorcycle Club helped host a candlelight vigil in honor of 5-year-old Andrew Trogdon and 3-year-old Logan Trogdon.
Songs, prayer and words of encouragement were given to the families at Bicentennial Park in Asheboro.
Organizer Lisa Phillips said although not all the bikers knew the family, they felt compelled to help someone in the community after such a loss.
“It has brought a lot of people together,” Phillips said. “It has shown everybody what the community can do together.”
The children were killed in a fire reported last Saturday at a home on Buffalo Ford Road in Asheboro.
The club will also host the Trogdon and Hurley Family benefit at 1305 Green Farm Road on Saturday July 27.
The benefit is free for kids under the age of six, $1 for children ages 6-12 and $2 for adults.
The event will feature live entertainment, raffle prizes and food with all proceeds going to the victims’ family.
