Riders, Sponsors and Friends,
May 20th was an excellent day for the 4th Annual Ride for Hope, Healing and a Future benefit
motorcycle ride at Pine Valley Camp! Riders
came, sponsors gave and volunteers served.
Best of all the weather cooperated and gave us a dry, pleasant day!
group of 75 riders rode 90+ scenic miles through Beaver, Butler, Lawrence and Mercer
counties, with refreshment stops at the New Castle Harley
Davidson and Wendell August Forge. Following
the ride, everyone returned to camp to enjoy dinner outside, listen to blues music
by the band Eugene & the NightCrawlers, and hear who the winners were of
the 50+ auction items and raffles on hand.
individuals and organizations worked together to make this event a success. We had 76 sponsors lend their support
financially or with an in-kind gift, and 20+ individuals who volunteered their
time to prepare the food or to ensure the day ran smoothly. As a result of these efforts, approximately $7,800.00
was raised to benefit the ministry of Pine Valley Camp!
monies raised this year will be directed towards the Rebuild Campaign, which
entails building a new dining hall, quad-plex cabin, pavilion and boys bath
house on the camp’s property. Pine
Valley desperately needs to build these structures in order to continue serving
the hurting and at-risk kids who come to camp each year. Last summer 708 campers experienced a safe
and loving atmosphere here and had fun just being a kid. This year, that number and more are expected,
and the extra space is needed so that no child is turned away because of no
room. Pine Valley has been serving youth
for 22 years now and they continue to faithfully fulfill their mission of
“Rebuilding Broken Lives through Christ.”
closing, thank you for your willingness to support this event. Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
