ROCHELLE — The “Irish Monkeys,” a charity biking team that consists of local sisters, Dannielle Hahn, Rochelle, Michelle Anderson, of Oregon, and their family members, are hosting a vendor and craft show expo to raise funds for the American Diabetes Association on Oct. 13, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Hickory Grove Banquet Centre, in Rochelle.

The sisters, who rode the “Tour de Cure” 21-mile bike ride for diabetes in Madison, Wis., last spring, advocate to find a cure for the disease, as many of their family members have it. The sisters raised $2,000 for the biking event last year and hope to raise more for the next May 18 bike ride.
