Now that the dust has settled and the hangovers are gone I wanted to take minute and thank and update everyone on the event. Through registration, donations, raffles, and 50/50 we were able to raise just over $2700 There are so many people to thank so if I miss someone I'm sorry. A huge thank you goes out to Chuck Hollis. He came up with the idea one night in the shop and nailed it. Thanks to his wife Vicky for helping and putting up with all of our "meetings". Thanks to my Aunt Cheryl and Uncle John for host at CHARS BAR and doing the food.
Thanks to the cancer center girls Shauna, Chelsi, Kay, Ashley for helping do the registration and reaching out for donations.
Thanks to my parents, Uncle Mike, Aunt Gloria, Uncle Warren, and Aunt Sue for assisting with the whole event as well. Thanks to Brandon Kelley for assisting with the poker hands.
Last but not least thank you to all the riders and local businesses that donated to the cause.
Again if I'm missing anyone I'm sorry I blame the beer.
It wouldn't have been the event it was without everyone involved. We have had some great feedback and already looking forward to planning and improving the event to make the 2nd annual ride better than the first.
If anyone has any pictures or feedback feel free to email them to matt beardlaws.com
