The Angels have been working trying to get things done for the up coming ride! July 13th & 14th are only a couple weeks away!! The Chairs for Charity are starting to come in! Hope to have them displayed soon at a place for all to see! There are some amazing chairs coming in! The donations are a little slow coming in, but know we have some good items coming! The stops on the route have been getting ready too! Some of them will be selling pink ribbons to decorate there establishments! A dollar a ribbon and at the end, they will toss all those ribbons into a hat and draw one out for a chance to win a Angel Ride shirt! I know Saturday when we were at Sportsters in Newell they already had about 10 sold! Its fun to see how excited they are to have this event come through their community! Well as the clock is ticking I need to keep moving! Stop back to visit the blog! Thanks for all the support that you are giving us as we couldn't do it with out your help! Ride Safe~ Angel Ride Girl

June 2nd the Angel Ride helpers were in the Frontiers Day Parade! Many walked the parade throwing out candy along the way! And some sat in front of Sneakers Pub & Eatery selling baked goods to those that attended the parade! There were so many goodies there for sale! The items that didn't sell were taken over to the Beacon of Hope men's shelter! They enjoyed the treats there!! Then on June 8th Community Pizza hosted a 2nd Annual Garage Sale! There were many items donated! It was a beautiful day for a garage sale! Had many show up to buy things too! Would like to thank all those people that donated, bought, worked & came by to say HI! That evening Community Tap let us have their sponsor night at Mineral City Speedway! Was an awesome night at the track! Enjoyed meeting new people that stopped by to talk & met many new people too! Then on June 9th, a friend of mine called me up a couple months ago, asked me if it would be ok if he hosted a car wash for us at Kum & Go 115 N 22nd St. Not knowing how it would turn out, there were approx 25 cars washed that day! The helpers worked hard! We were short a couple of workers as they were called into work, but in the end, we called in some helpers & it all worked out for the best! Thanks to all that helped us out and for all that came through to have their cars washed! It all comes together with help from others! It is amazing on what others come together to do for us! The ideas from others, help to make this a great event! Not only the day of the ride, but months & weeks prior to the event! We make new friends along the way as well as meeting back up with old friends that we haven't seen for awhile. Our families also help us out each day to keep our hopes up that we can make this a good event to help those that are in need of the funds! Thanks again for being apart of the Angel Ride event, wheatehr you help getting it put together, donate, work at it, or ride the day of it! "Together We Can & Will DO IT!" GOD Bless you all~ Keep on Riding~ ~~Angel Ride Girl
You are going to think that I have fallen off my rocker! Nope, we are just re-vamping the rockers & chairs (& tables) and came up with "Chairs for Charity"! 2 years ago we did the "Bras for the Cause" and this year as I was getting extra chairs to sit on during a meeting I pulled out a chair that I had started to re-do for my son, and thought, Chairs for Charity would be a great way to bring in funds for the Angel Ride! I have had approx 7-8 chairs come in already! Every one is original in its own way! The one thing that I had asked is Please place a pink ribbon on the chair some where so that those that are buying them will see the ribbon and know that they are for breast cancer! The chairs do not all have to be pink, I am hoping for sports ones, music, whatever anyone thinks up! The one at the top here is from the FDSH art class! When my son brought it home along with other chairs, I was truly amazed that it was an early 1900s rocker! Beautiful done! I would say that I want it for my self, but my daycare kids love it all the same! So whom ever bids on it will win it!! We also had one child's rocker that came in all decorated in Cow~Girl! It is sitting down at Riverside Tap in Lehigh! They are going to raffle it off for us!! There is many people out there that are helping us out in one way or another! Making the chairs to selling them for us! It all goes to a great cause! I can't wait to see the others that are out there getting finished up! I do think that this will turn into a good thing for us! Oh and for those that know I like spray paint! Yes I am working on one and it is going to be in memory of my aunt that I just lost... all I will say is that it is a desk! I hope to be better at writing again, have been busy & sided tracked, so I think I am getting back to normal... BUSIER (heehee)! Take Care~ Ride Safe~ ~~Angel Ride Girl~~

Can you believe how nice the weather is this year? I hear bikes out on the roads for weeks now & it is only March 24, 2012! But the grass is green and things are starting to bloom, so the bikers are getting the itch to ride including me, but we haven't had the bike out yet... YET!
We have got the 2012 ANGEL RIDE date set! July 14, 2012 starting at Community Tap & Pizza at 9-11am! The ride will to to Rockwell City, Sac City, Newell, Fonda, Manson and back to Community Tap by 5pm for silent & live auctions, food & fun! Oh and there is always entertainment going on! Fun to catch up with old friends and to meet new ones!!
But before we start the ride on the 14th lets back up a day FRIDAY JULY 13th for the pre-party/registration night! Yes, Friday the 13th, we don't think of it as a bad luck day, think of it as "PINK LUCK"! It is going to be held at Sneakers Pub & Eatery here in Ft Dodge, there will be a band playing 7-11pm that night and a chance to sign up for the ride early!
We have the shirts designs coming soon, it will be an awesome one, as always!! We will have new things for sale, such as window decals for cars & smaller ones for bikes! I will keep you posted as we get the new items in as to what they are!!! I can't wait, fun & exciting new ideas!!
OH, please save the date for June 8th, 2012 Community Tap will be hosting a garage sale for us on the corner of South 22nd St & 5th Ave! If you live in this area, and are wanting to get rid of your loved items that you no longer want or use, please consider donating them to our ANGEL RIDE GARAGE SALE! Should be a big sale like it was last year! And all the money that we raise goes to help the local breast cancer patients with uninsured expenses, such as scarves, wigs, travel expenses!!!
Safe Travel to you my friends~
