BINGHAMTON (WBNG) – On Saturday, The Punishers Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club put on the 2nd Annual Pastor Lyle Ward Memorial Fundraiser. The club hopes the fundraiser can return to normal next summer. “My family adopted four foster care kids out of the system, so foster care is huge in my family,” Hammond said. “The foster care system around here needs as much help as we can give them so that’s why we do this event.” Hammond, who is also the grandson of Pastor Ward, told 12 News the foster care system has always been very important to his family. Due to COVID-19, this year’s fundraiser was a drive through barbecue. From late morning to early afternoon cars flooded the parking lot of the Lowe’s in Binghamton to get a barbecue dinner. The fundraiser raises money for kids in the foster care system in Broome County. last_img
