40th Emerald Coast HOG Toy Run Helps Kids
The 40th Annual Emerald Coast Harley Owners Group Chapter #3605 Toy Run closed out by raising almost $20,000 to help the abused children served by the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center and the at-risk abused and neglected children living at the Children in Crisis Neighborhood.
More than 600 bikers met at the Sam’s Club parking lot in Ft. Walton Beach Sunday morning and paraded to the Niceville Boggy Festival grounds. Entry fee was $10 and each participant donated a new toy or gift card. Emerald Coast Harley Davidson of Fort Walton Beach and Sam’s Club sponsored the event again this year. Cumulus Broadcasting and the Northwest Florida Daily News helped spread the word to all the bike enthusiasts in the area.
According to Ken Hair, CIC President and CEO, “This annual event is sponsored by the HOG Chapter #3605 with support from the Emerald Coast Harley Davidson, Sam’s Club, Cumulus Broadcasting, the NWF Daily News and the awesome participants. This wonderful event has help us make Christmas a special time for the at-risk children living at the CIC Neighborhood.”
