The threat of rain didn’t stand in the way of the Fifth Annual Hogs vs. Hunger motorcycle ride presented by Belterra Park Gaming and the Belterra Casino Resort on Saturday, June 27. We had a great turnout for the 100 mile ride through Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Nearly 100 motorcycles participated in the ride, which started at the Thoroughbred Harley-Davidson in Kentucky, stopped for a buffet lunch at Belterra Resort in Indiana and then commenced at Belterra Park in Ohio.
Each $30 ticket sold included registration for the ride, an official Hogs vs. Hunger t-shirt and a chance to win a 2015 Heritage Softail Classic. All proceeds benefit the Freestore Foodbank Customer Connection Center located at 112 East Liberty Street in Over-the-Rhine. The Customer Connection Center provides emergency food and other services to our neighbors to help stabilize them and get them back on the road to self-sufficiency. Services include clothing and housing, money management and job assistance.
During the past four years, proceeds from Hogs vs. Hunger have provided the equivalent of more than 100,000 meals for the community.
Congrats to Jim Stockmeier, winner of the 2015 Heritage Softail Classic, and our deepest appreciation to Thoroughbred Harley-Davidson, Belterra Casino Resort and Belterra Park Gaming & Entertainment Center for their tremendous support of our efforts to serve our hungry neighbors in the Tri-State area.
