Fibre Federal Credit Union and iQ Credit Union are at it again with their 8th annual Ride & Rock event benefiting Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. With hopes of raising more than $50,000, motorcyclists and concert goers will rally together to ride and then rock for a great cause.
The ride portion will kick off at Fibre Federal Credit Union’s Woodland Branch, located at 147 Goerig St. Registration begins at 11:00am and lunch will be provided courtesy of Gilliano’s Pizza Parlor.
Participants can purchase additional merchandise such as a commemorative teddy bear to keep or donate to a sick child at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.
Motorcycle enthusiasts will enjoy a scenic poker run to Mt. St. Helens with a stop at Johnston Ridge Observatory. They will then travel through Castle Rock and end at the beautiful Bethany Vineyards in Ridgefield, Washington, for an upbeat, top 40’s style concert featuring 5Live with Raeann Phillips. A BBQ dinner will be served and wine service will be available.
Since 2006, the Ride & Rock poker ride has raised nearly $237,000 for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The idea for the ‘Ride & Rock’ was created by Larry Hoff of Fibre Federal Credit Union and Roger Michaelis of iQ Credit Union, who both have a passion for riding motorcycles.
“We’re more than honored and proud to be raising funds and awareness for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital,” says Hoff. “Because of their commitment to help all children regardless of their ability to pay, Doernbecher can truly use our help to continue their passion for healing and research. It goes without saying that if our Ride and Rock event can be translated into help for one sick child – – or assistance toward even a small breakthrough for some crippling childhood disease – – – we’ll have given a true gift to our society. Helping sick children…can there be a more worthy goal?”
Pre-registration is available for the ride at a discounted rate until August 4th. For those who would like to attend the concert only, tickets may be purchased, including a BBQ dinner, for $25.
