MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – An area motorcycle club is hosting a fundraiser to benefit Huntington Beach State Park, which lost its nature center earlier this month due to a fire.

According to a Facebook post, the Reapers are doing a benefit ride and poker run on Sept. 18, with registration beginning at 9 a.m., at SBB in Murrells Inlet.

All money raised during the ride will go toward rebuilding the center and for other needs park officials need to take care of, the Facebook post stated.

Turtles, alligators, snakes, and aquariums of fish did not survive the fire that destroyed the nature center at Huntington Beach State Park in the early-morning hours of July 20. 

The preliminary investigation determined that a lightning strike was the probable cause of the fire.
