May 17th First Annual Solidarity Motorcycle Run
On May 17, 2015, IBEW Locals 99 and 2323 will be hosting the First Annual Solidarity Motorcycle Run. This is open to all riders and non-riders but we are specifically attempting to pack the event with Union Members from every corner of the Labor Movement.
You can be involved in many ways. Your Local can become a sponsor for $125.00, which will include: recognition, 2 ride/cookout tickets, and 2 American Made/Union made T-shirts or your local can make a straight donation. All individual members are also very welcome to attend. If you don’t ride, but still wish to be involved, we also welcome you in that capacity. We will be holding a general information and planning meeting at the IBEW Union Hall at 22 Amflex Drive in Cranston on March 5, 2015 at 5:30 PM. Anyone interested in being involved in the final planning or helping out in any way is invited. A healthy turnout for the event is extremely important in order to make an impact in showing the public what Solidarity means, and what Unions supporting the community is all about.
All net proceeds of this year’s event will benefit Pink Heals RI, which is a 100% volunteer, local charity that provides support to cancer patients and their families. We will have the Pink Heals Fire Truck on site the day of the event also, which all cancer survivors are encouraged to sign.
