PKC Holds Benefit Auction for Man Fighting Cancer

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Many of those who come from across the country for the PKC Superstakes being held in Salem this weekend arrived early to participate in a benefit dinner, auction, and hunt for one of those who has been involved in the local club that hosts the event.   Marion County Coon Hunters President David Dial was overwhelmed with the turnout to raise money for his brother Clayton Dial who is currently fighting multiple cancers.   

"PKC is just a big family," Dial said, "When someone's down everyone comes out to support them."

Multiple states were represented among the more than 100 who were at the dinner and auction, including Texas, Kansas, Kentucky, and Mississippi.  The President of the PKC, Roger Dale Carnegie, was also there.  

"I couldn't be prouder of the PKC community and the Salem community,"  Carnegie said, "Its for a great cause and a great guy."  

David Dial had special thanks for the Flora Coon Club who cooked the tenderloins for the meal and the many businesses around the area that donated items for the auction.   Many of those in attendance who were successful bidders turned the items back in so they could be auctioned again to benefit the PKC Youth Scholarship fund.   That auction will be held as part of the Youth Hunt that will be held in Salem next month.
