First it was lost, then it was found. Brandon May says it's Karma that the stolen red truck, which was a gift from his father, found its way back to him.
Tonight, May held a fundraiser to give back to ALS research at The Attic in Lexington.
May, a musician, says something good has come out of having the truck that meant so much to him stolen. May's father, Randy May, gave his son the red GMS pickup truck not long before he died from ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease.
May left his keys in the car in his driveway one day in July, and the truck and the band equipment inside was gone, but not for long. May found the truck himself. He doesn't think it was a coincidence, and since then he's been raising awareness about ALS in memory of his father.
"I still say from the beginning he's the one who helped bring it back. Somehow. He kind of orchestrated it all, I think," says Brittney Allen of her father,
"I'm just glad that Dad's watched out for us, and led everything to this chain of events to tonight. Something good has happened from it," says May.
Admission to The Attic is free, but donations for ALS are accepted. You can also donate to the ALS Association in Kentucky.
