whether you consider yourself a biker or not, the brandy winfield memorial poker run is definitely an event for everyone. our favorite aspects? the fundraising and the eye-catching bikes…and by bikes, we also mean their owners. side note: when it comes to bikers – at least in our experience – it’s always the tougher the look, the bigger the teddy bear.
on june 2nd, under bright blue skies, over 500 sparkling, bad-ass bikes roared into the marion county fairgrounds to honor fallen officer brandy winfield and to raise money for various charities. after their ride, the group returned to the veterans memorial coliseum for a bbq and performance by local band – left of center.
this event takes place every summer, usually during the first weekend in june, and this something you need to put on your agenda for next year. it’s a great time and an even better cause! and by all means, forget a stuffed animal…hug a biker.
