1st Annual Riders Against Hunger
Thank you to everyone who was involved in our first-ever Riders Against Hunger (RAH) motorcycle charity ride in support of Eden Community Food Bank.
Altogether, the ride raised $10,000! Because the cost of the event was completely covered by our corporate sponsors, 100% of what was raised by the participants, just over $6,000, went directly to the food bank to help purchase food and support hungry families in western Mississauga.
Congratulations to our ride winners! John Scheepers, Zoran Nosic and Gabrielle Braithwaite received Top Fundraiser prizes. Gabrielle Braithwaite also won the Top Raffle prize which was the 46” RCA LCD TV. Gabrielle got her husband to come to the end venue to help her take her new TV home (and he was happy to do it!). The Best Hand Prize of the trip for two to Vegas, provided by the-right-solution.ca, went to Lesley Deller. We hope Lesley and her husband, Dennis, will continue their winning streak when they go on their trip to Vegas.
Our thanks for participating goes out to the Southern Cruisers Riding Club who had the highest number of members from a single club. We hope to have even more Southern Cruisers out next year!
The date for our 2nd Annual Riders Against Hunger motorcycle charity ride is Saturday, August 18th, 2012. Please mark your calendars now and talk with friends about coming along with you next year.
