Letter: Bike Show thanks
To the editor:
On Saturday, Sept. 19, Kobi’s Bar and Grill had its 17th Annual Bike Show. This year instead of giving all the money raised to one needy family, Kobi’s staff decided to donate the money raised to Vaughn-Trent Community Services. We thought we would like to help more than one family and we know Vaughn-Trent would keep the money in our community.
With the help of bar and kitchen staff, we were able to raise over $2,200 in donations from our local and surrounding area biker community. It takes a great deal of time, commitment and money to put this event together.
Kobi’s would like to thank each person and business, individually and specifically, but we are afraid we would forget someone. There were many local and surrounding area businesses that contributed to our cause. Some contribute every year, faithfully. Others were first-time contributors who we hope will continue donating to our fundraisers. Many volunteered their time and others donated money.
This year we had a fantastic Saturday afternoon with great weather and an awesome crowd. The biker crowd that frequents Kobi’s is cool and generous. They are more than willing to donate to a worthy cause and always have a good, trouble-free time here at Kobi’s.
We are grateful to each and every person and business who contributed. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
