2 motorcycle dealerships raising funds for flood victims
Friday, May 20, 2011
The co-owners of two regional Harley-Davidson dealerships will devote 40 days and nights of fundraising for relief to flood victims in Southern Illinois and Southeast Missouri. "Our goal is to raise $40,000 in 40 days by selling raffle tickets for the chance to win a brand new 2011 Harley-Davidson Superlow," said Shad Zimbro, co-owner of Black Diamond Harley-Davidson of Marion, Ill., and Bootheel Harley-Davidson in Scott City, in a news release. Ticketssales begin Saturday and will continue until July 2, when a winner will be drawn. They can be purchased at either the Marion or Scott City location, one for $10 or four for $20. Other prizes include a five-night stay at a Daytona Beach, Fla., timeshare and a gift basket. In addition to the raffle, both dealerships will accept nonperishable foods, blankets and personal hygiene products to donate to the American Red Cross. Stuffed teddy bears will also be sold for a minimum donation of $5 and given to flood-victim children.
