CVHHH raised over $31,000 at the Motorcycle Poker Run & Raffle, which was held on Saturday, September 18, to benefit Central Vermont families. 33 motorcycle riders gathered at the Capital City Country Club in Montpelier and took off for a motorcycle ride led by the Rock Solid Crew with stops in Williamstown, Roxbury, and Northfield. Participants and friends reconvened back at the Capital City Country Club for a chicken barbecue and lunch, with food donated by McAuley’s Foodservice and Dan Violet, owner of Jockey Hollow catering, and cooking provided by a few Montpelier Kiwanis, Fred Bushway and Andy Ribolini.
Brian Aitchison, Berlin resident and CVHHH Board Member, rode in the event and said: “I enjoyed participating in the Poker Run. The riders from Rock Solid did a fantastic job leading the motorcyclists safely on a scenic route throughout Central Vermont. The ride was well organized and safe, and the checkpoint volunteers were efficient. It was a fun day with a bunch of friendly riders, all out to support such a worthy cause. I look forward to next year’s event.”
