Charity Bike Nights were held every second Wednesday from May through October at Uptown Social House on Walkers Line. Organized by Sue Stitch, these were charity events to support and honor the “Compassion Society of Halton” during these difficult pandemic times.
Bikers entered their ‘wheels’ into competition. Prizes were awarded in several categories such as Best Chopper, Best Chrome, Best Paint, and more. Other action included door prizes, games, and a 50/50 draw.
There was lots of fun, great food and music. All bikes were welcome to enter. Angels of Awareness Laura, Debbie, and Corey-Anne all came out to lend their support.
“Join us even if you don’t have a bike,” welcomed organizer Sue Stitch. “Or even if you don’t know what a Cruiser, Chopper, Sportster or Trike is. You’ll have a great time supporting the Compassion Society of Halton.”
The final Bike Night event was held on October 20 and included a BBQ and other surprises. Donny Petersen, author of several motorbike books, was there for to sign copies of his new book, ‘The Milwaukee-Eight’.
There was a Show “N” Shine for Motorcycles. Entry was $10, with all the funds going to the Compassion Society of Halton.
Blues Hall of Famer, James Anthony made an appearance as well as Leroy Emmanuel, Marvin Gaye’s lead guitarist and best friend growing up.
It was an awesome closing night, with a special guest, Jessey the Elf, delivering trophies! This was a family event with Kids able to pose for photos with the Elf on a very cool Motorcycle.
Compassion Society of Halton was there to accept the money that was raised through these amazing bike events. The Society will put the funds to great use responding to community needs for food, clothing and household articles.
