Shar’s Ride for MS was a success!
The 8th annual Shar’s Ride for MS was awesome. The event this year raised $10,899.36, bringing the accumulated total to $68,107.33!
The event started out with registration at the "Rise N' Shine". The 81 motorcycles began their ride of 150 km throughout Essex County and enjoyed absolutely perfect weather while riding! The Poker Stops took them to the Sandbar in Puce, Bigg's in Belle River, Pelee Island Winery Store in Kingsville and Danielle's Soft Ice Cream in Harrow. The ride ended at the Columbus Center in Windsor for dinner and lots of fun! It did rain for a bit while we were in the hall for dinner and those that had their helmets hanging from their handle bars, came out to helmet buckets full of water! 159 Participants of this event enjoyed a family style dinner at the Knights of Columbus Centre on Columbus Drive in Windsor following the ride, which I might add was delicious! Our many thanks Laurie Munn and the Columbus Center staff for the hall setup, the dinner & the exemplary service they extended to all of us! Dessert (200 Cupcakes) was graciously made and donated by MaryBeth Charbonneau. They were delicious! THANKS!
Many thanks to the Event Sponsors: DIAMOND; Biz X Magazine, InPlay Magazine, Families First, IUPAT Local 1494/1590, Leather King, Steve’s Auto Shine and Belt Drive Betty, RUBY; The Healing Garden, Robinson Motorcycle, Fran Sales-AVON, The Leaf, Vision Realty and The Sandbar, for their event contribution and support.
Thanks to the businesses in our community that contributed door and auction prizes and of course, those that collected & contributed pledges. Your contribution is what helps to make this event a great success! We hope to have your continued support in the years to come! This event wouldn’t be possible without many MS Society volunteers as well as volunteers from the group of riders themselves, who worked the event. Volunteers, sponsors, contributors and participants — we all make up a team and it’s this team that makes this event a success year after year. All funds raised stay local to help subsidize the purchase of special equipment needed by those who have multiple sclerosis. To better the quality of life for these people is what this event is all about.
