Once again, another successful event for the Brothers Forever MC and ABATE Liberty Riders. They hosted another Polar Bear Benefit Ride Saturday, February 17, 2017. The weather was not perfect but everything else was good enough to get on them motorcycles and ride out to Gadgets in Lugoff, SC to register for the ride. The cost to register was $10 for a single and $15 for a couple. The first bike was out at noon and the last one out was 1pm, and the last bike was due in at 4pm.
Our first stop was at Rogers Country Store, where we all know we can expect to get a fried bologna sandwich. Then we headed to the next stop to meet our good friends at Gossips in Elgin. Our next stop was on over at Pam’s Front Porch, where what happens on the porch, stays on the porch. Then we headed on the other side of town to meet up with them wildcards at Jed’s Place and to get out of the rain that was following us. Once we did our time at Jed’s, we scooted on down the road to O’Kelly’s place in Hopkins to have a good time and see all the great people that came out to make this a great day in SC.
All good things must come to an end, but the end of the ride was the best part of it all. There was a 50/50 drawing, a raffle, a best and worst hand give a way for the ride, and live music by Freddy Joe Midnight. Friends from all over helped pack the parking lot and the bar as planned. Over $2900 was raised and the money was donated to the Tucker Veterans Home.
Memories, friends, and good times were what this day was made of. Great job to you all that came out. You are the ones that make the difference. Thank you all that made this day great for our veterans. I hope to see you again next year.
