Night of Giving, Christmas Wish Toy Run Huge Success in Beaver Dam, Kentucky
It was a record-breaking final "Rumble on 2nd" bike night of the season in Beaver Dam. 108 motorcycles showed up to celebrate and to give to families in need. Let's take a look back at the beautiful night of fundraising.
I never need an excuse to hang out in Beaver Dam with some of my favorite people. I just can't say enough about the biking community. It truly melts my heart when I see those big, rugged men pull up on their motorcycles carrying toys. When they walk in holding baby dolls and stuffed animals. It's just the best, and I just appreciate this community so much. Whenever you need help with a fundraiser or a family is in need, you can count on them to "show up". They ALWAYS show up. I'm extremely grateful for the passion shown to area families in need.
2nd Annual Christmas Wish Toy Run
It was a sight to see when 108 bikes roared into town and lined the streets of Beaver Dam for the final "Rumble on 2nd" of the season last night. It was humbling to see so many riders pulling up with toys for good boys and girls this holiday season. The roar of the engines as they pulled into town was goosebump-worthy. I never dreamed there would be a turnout like that. I'm not surprised though, as I mentioned, you always come through and for that, I'm grateful. After you look through all of the beautiful photos from last night, get ready for the reveal at the end! It's quite impressive.

And, now for your Grand Total! Because you all were so generous we raised an incredible amount of money. $1,185 will help so many families in need this holiday season. Not only will it provide toys from Santa, but a hot Christmas meal with a ham or turkey. I can't thank Denise and Barry Cooper enough for their passion and dedication to the community. Watching them perform God's work daily is a sight to behold and I'm just proud to also call them my friends. And, to the countless others that helped throughout the night, you know how thankful that I am for everything. That's it! Another successful Christmas Wish Toy Run is in the books! We'll see you next year.
As we get ready to celebrate our 45th Anniversary Season of Christmas, let's take a look back at the record-breaking 2020 season.
