Lees Summit, MO. – Coming up in a few short days is the beginning of the 74th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, there are obviously several great events in store for the 10’s of 1000’s of riders coming in from around the world. We are very proud to be part of those festivities. In past years we have supported numerous organizations and events. This year our efforts are focused on the Biker Belles event on Tuesday August 5th.
As it states at www.bikerbelles.com “The Biker Belles was created by the Sturgis Buffalo Chip for two complementary purposes. The first is to raise awareness of the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling, celebrating the woman’s role in shaping the culture, art and history of motorcycling. The second is to use this event to raise funds for worthy local charities that would be of particular interest to these very women.”
In the first place, we love women, so that is a good thing.
Secondly, if you go to the website you will see two very worthy causes the funds go to.
First is the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame. This is an organization I have worked for previously and continue to support today. It is a great group preserving history, and one that has a great future.
The second charity is truly worthwhile and very important to the community. That is Helping with Horsepower.
Helping with Horsepower™ is a program to help young women and girls who are at risk or are victims of abuse.As the Father of three wonderful daughters, I can see no better way to spend my time and resources but to help women and young girls in need.
I am sending this message to let everyone know of the generosity of these great industry professionals as they contribute to this wonderful event. An event that I will personally be present at to answer any questions about these Biker Belles participating industry leaders:
