Bikers For Boobs 2009

On August 15, 2009 the YWCA will participate in the 2nd Annual Bikers for Boobs motorcycle ride. The riders will depart from Rapids Riverside Bar and Grill at noon on the 15th, and travel to 5 stops along the scenic south shore of Lake Superior. Following the ride, a full pizza and soda buffet will be provided by Rapids Riverside, and your meal is included in the 15.00 event ticket price. There will also be live music, grand prize drawings, and a silent auction filled with great prizes. T-shirts for the event are $10.00 and raffle tickets are $5.00. You can purchase any of these items at the YWCA (32 E First St. Suite 202) or at Rapids Riverside (4385 S Cty. Rd. South Range, WI). All proceeds from this event will stay in our area to provide assistance to local women with the costs associated with breast health.
