Each additional hand $5. High Score $250 Low Score $25 50/50 and Raffle Ride is benefiting the Jingle Bell Ride (I have included a description below for you) we are hoping to make this an annual event, like with the November ride with horses. Jim and Lana Reigle got some friends together with their horses and went for one last ride before winter hit, to pick up toys for the NEK-CAP Christmas Bureau, today, 11 years later the tradition is still going and growing! Over the years the ride has grown and brought riders from as far as Illinois. What started as a few items has grown to be the largest contributor to the NEK-CAP Christmas Bureau which serves 150 families that day. Last year we raised over $15,000 in monetary and gift donations. The wonderful people from the "City of Beautiful Maples" greet the walkers with a smile as they go door to door asking for a pledge to the ride. Not to mention the many other people from all over Kansas and other states who donate their time, money and gifts. What once was just a ride is now a community event. Santa comes to visit, there is local entertainment, miniature horse rides and more! We are also working on having motorcyclist ride in surrounding communities the day of the ride, since the Christmas Bureau serves all of Brown County. Upon review of our success, we have decided that we want to contribute to kids all year. We have made the decision that any monetary contributions that are remaining after the Christmas Bureau are to go towards a scholarship fund for area children that would like to attend camps and/or participate in activities, but whose parents do not have the means to pay for the expenses. With that we are in the planning phase for an annual Dice Run to help raise moare funds for the scholarship program. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, my numbers are listed below. I am the contact person for both rides.
