Ed Abdella is cycling for another good cause this July
Abdella is traveling almost 1,200 miles in 4 days to raise money for historic Merrehope.
MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - On July 4th, after a huge kickoff celebration at Merrehope, Abdella and his team will hit the Mississippi roads in hopes of raising awareness for many of the historic buildings around Mississippi. Merrehope will be his main focus. Abdella has a goal to raise $25,000 in donations for the historic home located here in Meridian. He says he believes that is a doable goal.
“You know, we’re living in a city right now that’s watching buildings being torn down and it’s sad,” said Abdella. “We just saw the E.F. Young Hotel, and I told the board members, I think people will want to get on board with saving Merrehope and they’ll do it by just remembering what happened to the E.F. Young Hotel. That shouldn’t have happened, and it’s sad. I can’t give them a check for 25 grand, but I can ride.”
