LANCASTER – Calling all area motorcyclists! You’re invited to participate in a motorcycle ride through the Antelope Valley in honor of California officers who made the ultimate sacrifice and the families they left behind.
The inaugural “Ride for the Fallen, Families left behind” Memorial Poker Run will take place on Saturday, July 20, 2013. Registration takes place from 9 to 10 a.m. at Antelope Valley Harley Davidson, located at 1759 West Avenue J-12 in Lancaster.
The cost to participate is $25 per rider and $30 per couple, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to the Organization for Families Left Behind. The event is presented by the Iron Circle Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club to promote riding and to help support the families left behind by fallen heroes.
“Families of slain law enforcement are left to deal with not only the tragedy of the loss, but the huge financial burden that may fall upon them as well,” said organizer Tom Bryant. “Many riders want to help and this is one way.”
The event is sponsored in part by Antelope Valley Harley Davidson. Assemblyman Steve Fox will also attend and assist with rider registration, organizers said.
The motorcycle ride, led by Ron Emard, starts at Antelope Valley Harley Davidson and goes to Charlie Browns in Littlerock, La Cabana Restaurant in Acton, The Rock Inn in Lake Hughes and ends at Foxy’s Southwest Steakhouse on 60th street west and Avenue G, where there will be a live band. Raffle prizes, including a gun safe, two guns, hotel stays and dinners, will be given away.
