Over the years we have held charity poker runs, auctions, garage and bake sales and special events donating the proceeds to many local Charities including Hospice, Dale-Roy School, Cancer Society, Samaritan Hospital, Council on Aging, bench at Myers Bandshell, Make a Wish Foundation and Others. We also visited and caroled to local Rest Homes. Each Christmas we donate food to Associated Charities or help the Animal Shelter with needed items. Each year we have a Teddy Bear Ride, taking stuffed toys to
Samaritan Hospital and Cleveland Clinic. We have bike shows to show off our motorcycles and project a good image for GWRRA.
