ABATE (A Brotherhood Aimed Toward Education) District 18 Toys for Tots Ride for the Children.
With winter just around the corner, ABATE #18 will be hosting their annual last-ride-of-the-season. Saturday, October 12, 2013. ABATE#18 sets this ride to benefit local children during the holidays. Sign-up starts at 10:30am at the Eagles Club, 2727 Mt. Pleasant Street, Burlington, Iowa. Sign-up fees are $5.00 for ABATE members and $7.00 for non members. The ride will consist of several stops in the local area. The ride will end at Haller Tavern, 1619 Osborn Street, Burlington with all bikes needing to be in by 5:00pm.
A silent auction will be held after the ride with all proceeds to be donated to Toys for Tots. New toys in their packaging can be donated and dropped off at Hot Toddies, 1500 Agency Street, Burlington, before the ride and can be brought to the Eagles Club the day of the ride -- or Haller Tavern at end of the ride. As always, this ride is open to the public -- bikes, cars, trucks, whatever. ABATE #18 is accepting silent auction items by calling Randy Hiland at 319-572-5733.
