“We are pleased to hold an event that welcomes all motorcycle riders, but particularly participation by local firefighters, their families and friends for a fun day at the fire museum and educational center. The facility is a perfect place to end our ride with a glimpse into the life of a firefighter and the changes and advancements that have occurred in fire fighting throughout time,” said Larry Rice, Paul Davis office owner. “The museum is filled with one of a kind fire vehicles and antique fire equipment, which date back to the mid 1700's. Kids of all ages will love the interactive displays and hands on equipment,” he said.
“Most importantly, we are donating 100 percent of the event proceeds to one of the Lowcountry firefighter’s charity of choice, Carolina Children’s Charity.”
Founded in 1987, Carolina Children's Charity is a community organization created by local volunteers to meet the needs of children under the age of 18 in the Lowcountry with birth defects and childhood diseases such as asthma to cerebral palsy, from juvenile diabetes to cancer, among others. The non-profit has no state or national affiliation and receives no government grants or reimbursement for services. The Charity relies solely on donations from the community and has provided assistance to thousands of children with services totaling more than $2.42 million.
