Raleigh H.O.G. & Ray Price Harley-Davidson Rumble To Deliver Toys & Kids’ Bikes

Scott Misner | Raleigh, NC

Santa’s elves will don leather on Saturday, Dec. 3, as motorcyclists take part in the annual “Toys For Tots” ride, sponsored by Ray Price Harley-Davidson/Triumph and the Raleigh Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.). For the past month, the Ray Price dealership collected donated toys and bicycles to share with local youth. On Saturday, riders will depart the dealership and stop in downtown Raleigh for a Laying of the Wreath ceremony, and then rumble to Lone Star Steakhouse in Knightdale to deliver toys to Marines. Raleigh H.O.G. will donate 50 bicycles and $3,000 in cash and toys to the U.S. Marines’ Toys For Tots campaign.

The public is invited to participate at Lone Star Steakhouse where a Toys For Tots Classic Car & Bike Show will take place that afternoon.

“Bikers from across the Triangle will hit the streets with us to deliver Toys For Tots,” said Kris Weiss of Ray Price, Inc. “We’re pleased to partner once again with Raleigh H.O.G. and the Marines to make this a special Christmas for families in need. This is a favorite charity event since it helps put smiles on kids’ faces.”

Motorcyclists of all makes have been invited to participate. In the past few years, many truckloads of toys and more than 170 bicycles have been donated to area children.

Raleigh H.O.G. makes a huge impact in the community. Employees of Walmart Triangle Town Center, including Raleigh H.O.G. member Billy Marshall, work with store management to donate their returned and damaged bicycles. H.O.G. members repaired the bikes throughout the year and stored them at Ray Price to be distributed to the community Dec. 3.
