Bikers Against Bullying's Iron Saddle Poker Rally raises $9,400 for Whitecourt District Preschool Bikers Against Bullying's Iron Saddle Poker Rally raises $9,400 for Whitecourt District Preschool
Iron Saddle Poker RallyAfter months is planning with some amazing people, we were able to pull off an incredible day of riding for 104 Bikes...
from all over Alberta AND were able to help raise funds for our Whitecourt District Preschool, support Josie's Toy Drive & Lemonade Stand and her fundraising efforts as she raised $887.60!
Although at the end of the day, neither of us actually got to ride as there was still so much organizing to do for all the riders when the returned, it was great to watch all the smiles and everyone having such a wonderful time!
Hubby and the boys got to follow behind with the Chase Truck to be on hand incase of any breakdowns. Luckily there was only 1 case of someone running out of fuel but he topped their tank and got them back with the pack!!!
Thanks to ALL that attended!!
