A ride for Santa

September 8, 2009 - Frank Robinson
I went on another motorcycle charity poker run this weekend, and this time I saw Santa.

Really, I did. I have photos to prove it.

The ride was held Sunday and began at a place called Pooch's in Mecca. As they say, Pooch's is "not in, but next to, Mosquito Lake."

The ride took the better part of a day. I would estimate about 200 people (that includes riders and passengers) took part. The cost was $10 each and the proceeds go to a place called Santa's Hide-A-Way Hollow off Ohio Route 87 on Bundysburg Road.

The ride, in all, was about 140 miles. It took us west to Middlefield, then north. We went through the Harpersfield Covered Bridge, Geneva on the Lake, a place called Paradise Bay Restaurant, then back south on Ohio Route 11, and back to Pooch's.

I'm not sure how much money was raised. There were a lot of Chinese auction items awarded and there also was a 50/50 raffle. The money helps fund, and I quote from the handout they passed out, "A place for terminally ill children and their families who want to share one last Christmas together." A phone number listed on the handout for information was 330-638-0011 or 330-770-8152.
