13th Annual Toys For Kids Ride set for Saturday at Continental and Roadhouse Harley-Davidson/RV

MT. VERNON, IL — Thirteen years ago, a handful of Continental Tire employees decided to put together a fundraiser so they could ride their motorcycles and raise a few hundred dollars to buy toys for local kids during Christmas time. That fundraiser is now the Toys for Kids Ride and is looking to eclipse a goal of $11,000 this year.

Coordinator Cindy Pierce says they are very close to their goal with the ride set for Saturday at 10:30am.

Kick-stands will be up at 11:30am and then it’s off to Roadhouse Harley-Davidson/Roadhouse RV for lunch, beverages and live music. Roadhouse Salesman, Erik Owens says they dealership loves partnering with this fundraiser to keep the dollars and toys local.

You do not have to be a rider to participate or donate. For more information call 618-246-2350.
