Breakfast, memorial ride planned for Marco Kauffman


STATESVILLE - A flapjack breakfast and memorial ride for Marcus “Marco” Kauffman will be held April 26.

Kauffman died in the hospital at the end of December after he was shot in the head during a robbery at his Rowan County home. His wife was pregnant at that time, and last month she gave birth to Marcus Landon Trace.

The breakfast will be served at Applebee’s 1115 Glenway Drive, Statesville, N.C., 28677 from 7  to 10 a.m. Tickets are $7 in advance and will be $8 at the door.

The escorted Memorial Ride to Salisbury Mall will honor Kauffman and the sacrifices public safety members make daily. Staging for the ride will begin at 11 a.m. in the Walmart parking lot behind Applebee’s.

There is a $20 registration fee to participate in the ride.
