The 10th annual Baer Harley-Davidson Polaris “Ride for the Cure” Multiple Sclerosis Poker Run was held on Sunday, June 24th.
Hundreds of motorcycles gathered for a spectacular run through the tri-State area sponsored by Baer Harley-Davidson Polaris, Jim & Sophia Sisco, Honesdale Harley Riders/H.O.G. Motorcycle Club, Harmony Lodge #8, and Combined Energy Services. Sign-up was in three locations at Baer in Honesdale, PA and at C.E.S. Andover Twp, NJ and C.E.S New Hampton, NY.
The ride ended at the beautiful facility of Sparrowbush Main St. Fire House, Sparrowbush, NY. Trophies and a cash prize were awarded for the top three poker hands. All participants then enjoyed a wonderful meal provided by Prime Time Meats from Milford, PA (served by C.E.S. employees and family members of Dingmans Ferry office and Pike County United Women), live music by R.E.N.O. and musical guests, vendors, raffles, and 50/50.
A special THANK YOU goes out to Honesdale Harley Riders/H.O.G., Backwoods MC, Hamlin Hawgs, Christian Motorcycle Association, Blue Knights PA Chapter #26, and all who helped make our “Ride for the Cure” for Multiple Sclerosis such a huge success including major contributors Wayne Venezia, and Jeff and Jim Shook, culminating in an amazing $9,700.00 donation.
We couldn’t have done this without the tremendous efforts by Jim and Sophia Sisco in collecting monetary and gift basket donations from the many generous businesses, Dorothy & Jay Meddaugh for the many baskets, and for all of the help and participation from Poker Stop Card Attendants, 50/50 sellers Rick & Lynne Holden and Karen Reome, and to Vanessa, Macey, Julie, Kim and Nellie for running the Chinese Auction.
Thank you also to Stateline Golf Carts for the use of their units, and to Tommy Bosch of Four Seasons Rental for providing tents and chairs. Please join us for next year’s event to be held on June 23, 2019 ending at Harriet Space Park (Deer Park) Hugenot, NY. Raffle tickets will be sold for a gun raffle and other prizes at Baer Sport Center, Inc for $10.00 each (1500 total) to benefit the 2019 “Ride for Multiple Sclerosis.
