An all-day Garden City event to include music, family games and activities, a live auction and rummage sale, is planned to help raise money for a handicap accessible vehicle for Bennie Robbins, a local man who suffers from muscular dystrophy and diabetes.

The event, the Big Ben Benefit, will feature numerous activities from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the First Baptist Church of Garden City, 1005 N. 11th St., including a live action, raffle, rummage sale, bake sale, concessions stand, bounce house, relay races, car show, lawn games, massages, a live DJ and demonstrations from Lee Richardson Zoo, Finney County Animal Shelter and Garden City police and fire departments.

Money raised will go toward a roughly $6,000 project to equip a VW Beetle with handicap-accessible features so that Robbins, who has been confined to a wheelchair for three years, may have more mobility and independence.

Donations can be dropped off with Robbins by Friday or made online at Those interested can call Robbins at (620) 521-7293 to schedule a date and time for the drop off.
