Hutchinson County Cares, Inc., is the vision of Toby Nutter of Stinnett, who was a friend of Casey Aylor of Borger. Aylor was killed in a motorcycle accident in 2008. The organization is dedicated to the memory of Casey in hopes that it can touch as many people as he did and his memory can carry on for years to come.
Later that year, Nutter hosted a Fourth of July barbecue among friends as a public fundraiser for Casey’s son Reed. The fundraiser was a huge success, and Nutter and his friends saw this a chance to do good things for others in need.
In doing so, they decided to make the July barbecue an annual event to help families in the local area. The event was christened Nutterville and the mission began.
After the success of the first Nutterville fundraiser, Hutchinson County Cares, Inc. was founded to continue helping those in need. The organization is a 501-C3 Corporation. The non-profit status of the organization allows corporations and individuals to make tax-deductible donations to assist in carrying on the organization’s mission.
Nutter and a group of people from Hutchinson County who serve on the Board of Directors, with financial assistance from Provenance Consulting, were able to transform his idea into an organization dedicated to helping local people and families in need.
Within just a few months of its inception, the organization received generous sponsorships from Jim’s Diamond Shop, Xcel Energy, Borger InterBank, Fuzzy’s Radiator Service, Panhandle Portables, Provenance Consulting, Inc., Revelations Chiropractic and Valero Energy.
Nutterville 2010, sponsored by Hutchinson County Cares, Inc., included a Casey Aylor Memorial Fun Ride and the Nutterville BBQ Cook-Off contest. Both events were extremely successful, raising approximately $10,000.
In October of last year, the organization received a donation of $50,000 from the Valero Texas Open Children’s Charity.
