Annual Toys for Tots Ride
The Tallahassee HOG (Harley Owners Group) Chapter and Tallahassee Harley-Davidson are proud to host this year’s Toys for Tots Ride on Sunday, December 8, 2013. The massive throng of leather-clad bikers will begin to descend at 9am at Tallahassee Harley-Davidson, 1745 Capital Circle, NW.
Don’t let the bikers fool you, either! Some people think bikers are “bad news,” but most are very generous when it comes to charity and especially children. There’s a huge motorcycle community in our area made up of many clubs who do positive things for our local community. And they have historically filled several Marine trucks with toys during the annual Toys for Tots Ride. So when you hear the rumble of motorcycles headed your way, don’t think of it as a bad thing … wave and cheer them on!
There will be Starbuck’s coffee, Dunkin’ Donuts, and music by Advanced Music Systems the morning of the ride. Those wishing to participate in the bike decorating contest must be registered and in the judging area by 10am. There are three categories for the bike decorating contest: Most Unusual, Best Themed, and Best Decorated. Contest prizes will be awarded at 10:15am.
There will be a pre-ride meeting at 10:30am and the ride will leave Tallahassee Harley-Davidson at 11am. The police escorted ride will continue around Capital Circle SW to Blairstone Road to the Apalachee Parkway and ending at Miller’s Ale House (722 Apalachee Parkway).
Riders who donate a new, unwrapped toy will get a free lunch provided by Miller’s. Riders are also encouraged to bring non-perishable food item(s) to support our local Second Harvest Food Bank.
HOG members will be selling door prize and 50/50 tickets throughout the event while Goram Entertainment provides music at Miller’s Ale House. The event will wind down with the door prizes and 50/50 drawing which was around $900 last year!
Join us as we ride to help make the holiday season brighter for families in our community!
If any local merchants are interested in donating door prizes or if you need any other information, please contact Jeanne Giuliani at 850-251-7920. We appreciate your support of this very worthy cause!
