Biker Dad: Survivor of domestic violence now rides to help other women


Domestic violence is a major problem in the Mid-South. Memphians are taking a stand against it, led by a woman who is a survivor herself. The annual “Behind Closed Doors” benefit Saturday raised money and awareness about domestic violence. The organizer, a survivor of domestic violence, has been putting this event on for several years. She's also a biker, and this year she added a charity motorcycle ride along with the live music the benefit has always had. 

“I started this benefit about 4 years ago," said Bobbi Lovell. "My goal is to help women and children in abusive situations, try to get them to a safer place, get them out of danger."

The day started at Rubillio's Sidecar Cafe on Whitten Road with the motorcycle ride and went late into the night at GameTime Sports Grill in Arlington with LIVE music.
