One hundred children in need at the Oxford Orphanage received a visit from a group of Easter bunnies in leather on Saturday, April 8, 2017. Motorcycle riders from across the region, including members of Raleigh H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group), took to the streets for the 11th annual Ray Price “Easter Basket Ride” to deliver care packages totaling more than $3,000 in donations to youth at the The Masonic Home for Children at Oxford.
“We’ve been doing this ride for 11 years now and have a large, committed group of motorcycle riders every year,” said Kris Weiss of Ray Price, Inc. “Everyone enjoys providing the youngsters with a unique Easter experience.”
Riders departed from the Ray Price dealership in Raleigh on Saturday morning and arrived in Oxford that afternoon. They delivered special Easter baskets for each youngster that included toys, bedding and everyday hygiene products.
