On Saturday, Aug. 25, Pete's Club Grill in Carnation will host a colon cancer benefit ride, in memory of former owner Don Lovett.

The motorcycle ride will leave Pete's Club in Carnation at 10 a.m. (breakfast will be served starting at 9 a.m.), and travel to Ocean Shores, where Lovett's parents live. The couple will be outside their home to greet riders as they pass by. Following a lunch break and toast in Ocean Shores, the ride will return to Carnation.

Riders are asked for a $25 donation, and $10 per passenger to participate, but any donations are welcome. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Colon Cancer Alliance (www.ccalliance.org).

Lovett owned Pete's Club for 10 years. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in April 2010, and died April 16, 2011.
