A “Benefit Ride”, will be held for COTA in honor of Zane Snider, a local child who is waiting for a heart transplant. The event is planned for Saturday Aug. 1, beginning at Smokin Harley-Davidson, 3441 Myer Lee Drive in Winston-Salem. Nineteen-year-old Snider is listed for a heart transplant at Duke University Children’s Hospital in Durham, and has recently undergone a procedure to place a mechanical heart in him (the first of it’s kind for someone born with Snider’s condition) as he waits for the life-saving donation. Funds are being raised to assist with transplant-related expenses.

Snider was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and is currently waiting for a life-saving heart transplant. The Snider family needs an estimated $100,000 to pay transplant-related expenses.

Snider is affectionately called “Superman” by his family and friends due to his unquenchable spirit.

“The family and friends of Zane want to encourage everyone to attend our Every Hero Needs a Heart Motorcycle Benefit Ride for COTA and help give Zane a second chance at life,” said Rhonda Mitchell, Event Chair. “100 percent of the profits from the ride will assist with transplant-related expenses.”

For more information about the our Every Hero Needs a Heart Motorcycle Benefit Ride for COTA please contact Rhonda Mitchell at 336-978-1017.

Snider’s family has asked for assistance from the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA), a national charity based in Bloomington, Indiana. COTA is dedicated to organizing and guiding communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses. COTA’s services are completely free of charge, and 100 percent of funds generated by COTA community fundraising campaigns are available for transplant-related expenses.

Last years winners in 2014 Best of Winston Salem Smitty’s Notes™Were Winner: Skippy’s, Runner Up: PB’s Hotdogs, Honorable Mention: Pulliam BBQ and Kermit’s.

Unknown Hinson – Luxuriant Sedans

unknownhinson

8:00 PM Friday Jul 10, 2015

The UNtold Story of Unknown. While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the antiperspirant. But don’t dismiss him as a novelty act. He’s one hell of a talent and has the music to prove it!

Looking somewhat like Dracula’s nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly. The band is now touring nationwide, wowing audiences with outrageous and campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone.

Hinson’s most recent CD release, “Live and Undead”, melds weepy twang, searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone-bad. Recorded at a sold-out show, an enthusiastic honky tonk crowd sings along with the King on every song. Raucous, theatrical and over-the-top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set anymore!

Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of lead character “Early Cuyler” in the popular show from Cartoon Network – “Squidbillies”. The first four seasons were so well-received that an immediate green light was given to future seasons. Check website for dates and time slots.

Unknown Hinson is an international winner in the Independent Music Awards for his alternative Country track “Torture Town” from the album “Target Practice”.

Unknown Hinson is also a featured artist for Reverend Guitars, representing them in many issues of Guitar Player magazine. A signature Unknown Hinson guitar is currently part of Reverend’s celebrity instrument lineup. Full page interviews and photos of Unknown are in March and April 2012 issues of Guitar Player, and on guitarplayer.comwww.reverendguitars.com

Upon his first performance at Rockabilly Revival, an annual festival in Austin, Tx, Rockabilly Magazine named Unknown Hinson as their “Find of the Year” www.rockabillymagazine.com

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Winston-Salem city officials say the turnout at last summer’s temporary skate park – at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds – was so good; they’re building a permanent one.

Construction on the new park, which will be built beside the fairground’s annex building, is set to begin this summer. It will be somewhere between 12 to 15 thousand square feet.

For local skaters, it’s a welcomed idea, especially when it comes to the next generation.

“Their parents aren’t just going be like, ‘Oh we’ll drop you off downtown for the day to go skate,’” said Colin Snoke, of Exodus Skate Shop in Winston-Salem. “They need a safer place to skate.”

Snoke began skateboarding at age 12 and when he got his first board, every other sport fell by the wayside.

“Skateboarding’s like endless, you can do it anywhere,” Snoke said. “There’s an infinite amount of tricks you…
