Annual Poker Run Returns to Honor Dakota Rager of Belton, Kentucky
Make plans to celebrate Dakota in the 8th Annual Lil' Rager Memorial Poker Run. The event honors Dakota Rager, 24, of Belton, who died on November 16th, 2015. Immediately after his death, those left behind knew they had to do something to honor his memory. They've been giving back in his name ever since.
I feel so blessed to know the Rager family. I love hearing about the life and legacy of Dakota. He was a beloved family member, loyal friend, and coal miner with Armstrong Coal Company. He touched so many lives in the Muhlenberg County community. I wish I could have met him, but it wasn't to be.
November 16th, 2015 is a day the Rager family will never forget. Dakota's parents, Paul and Donna Rager, and brother Justin were left to pick up the pieces after such a tragic loss. It's a loss that all of his family and friends will feel throughout their lives. People have said the same thing over and over again about Dakota. He's been described as handsome, stubborn, giving, strong, resilient, loyal, and sweet. The community will be mourning the loss for many years to come. Did I mention that Dakota always loved to give back? To help those less fortunate? His giving heart is remembered each year at the Lil' Rager Memorial Poker Run.
