For the 4th year in a row the Scootin' Sisters appeared on my show: North Idaho Business. They were talking about the 4th Annual Toys for Tots Ride.
- Held on September 17th, the ride starts at May’s Honda, in Sagle, ID.
- Registration: 9:00am
- Kickstands up: 10:00am
There's going to be plenty of activities at this ride, and they will include live music, various raffles, live auction, 50/50 and much more....
The sisters, Chris and Alex, explained that a few years ago some gals were sitting in Eichardt’s, enjoying a brew after a bike ride together. They talked about getting together on a regular basis, and the waitress asked what they were called. Hmmm, a group name? They came up with Scootin’ Sisters, and soon were planning events and get togethers and bike rides.
They got together with the Sandpoint Lions Club, a group long working to get toys and help for the hard pressed in Bonner County, and decided to do this pseudo poker run to raise funds for this worthy charity.
Last year they raised $7000 and have garnered over $15,000 in total, plus untold toys and gifts for kids. That means they have virtually doubled their dollars in each year they’ve had the run.
Now, you don’t have to be on a motorcycle to join the fun. All are welcome. Entry is just two unwrapped toys and $20 and includes a breakfast snack, your ride pin, lunch at Slate’s and live music.
