Preparing for the 2nd Annual Cueballs for a Cure on August 20, members of the Red Devil Warriors, a nonprofit cancer support organization, showed off their fiery roasted chicken chili at the Chili Cook-Off and Bike Show at Biker Church Roanoke. The event benefited the Salvation Army’s Turning Point & Starting Point programs.  “The Red Devil Warriors got their name from a chemo treatment that patients nicknamed the “red devil,” said the organization’s Vice President Yvette Michaud. “We started out helping our friends and family who were battling cancer and it grew and grew. We support with random acts of kindness, including supplying chemo treatment rooms with drinks and snacks, hand knit afghans, help with transportation, financial assistance and anything we can do to ease their situation and provide support and comfort,” she said. The charitable organization is selling 1-in-200 chances to win raffle tickets for each to win a 1991 Harley Davidson Sportster. The raffle is this year’s annual fund raising event.
