For the 16th consecutive year, Imagine Guild Inc. is hoping to host Memorial Weekend events in Mitchell.

Imagine Guild Inc., which hosts the annual event to raise funds for cystic fibrosis research, could receive permits to host its ninth straight all-day Memorial Weekend event and 16th year of hosting its charity poker run during Monday's regular meeting of the Mitchell City Council. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.

The May 27 event closes down a portion of downtown Mitchell on the Saturday prior to Memorial Day for locals to come together for food and fun to generate funding to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis, a disease that affects the lungs and the digestive system. According to information provided in the council's agenda packet, Imagine Guild has been able to raise $100,000 to send to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

The event will incorporate a poker run of approximately 80 to 100 motorcycle riders, a barbeque and a bean bag toss.

Imagine Guild is also seeking the city's help for the event, asking for $1,142 to be donated to help with permit and licensing costs of the event.
