Event Description

October 9, 2013 Updated Oct 9, 2013 at 9:55 AM CDT

My name is Greg Golden from TailGaters Pub in LeRoy, Illinois and I am writing you for your help to post our 1st annual Chad Baker Memorial ride event on October 12th, 2013 on your community calendar. This event is an all model/brand motorcycle and/or automobiles of any shape and size (street legal and licensed) through central Illinois, mainly most parts of McLean County. The Weather so far looks to be great with temp at the mid 70’s and no rain. The Ride event will start at 10:30 am and end at 5:00 P.M. from TailGaters Pub in Le Roy, Illinois. The Memorial Ride will be $10 entry-donation, for each rider, passenger, and/or participant. For those that cannot make the ride, a $5.00 cover/donation at the door.
Chad Baker was a good friend, classmate, father and family member. He was taken from us suddenly, this past February, in a fatal auto accident. When this tragic accident happened, he left behind two children (Chassidy age 13 and Makaela age 2), that loved their father very much and changed their lives drastically. We plan to take the monetary donations and proceeds from the event and put them towards an education trust fund for the children.
We will have a 50/50, raffle and door prize drawings with items donated to the event. Our Big Raffle items we have are: 1. Handgun ($5 for one or $10 for three raffle tickets)-380 Ruger w/100 rounds of ammo From Hawkeye Sales in LeRoy (must have a FOID card to claim) 2. An Apple IPAD from Frontier Communications. We have several donated items and we will bucket auction some things off to raise funds. This portion of the day will be the most anticipated and exciting for the public and participants. We will also have live entertainment: Tax Free Prophets at 5 pm and Cherokee County Line will be playing tunes throughout the night starting at 8:30 pm.
Any questions about the event, please contact Jeff Baker (brother) at 309-275-3729 or Greg Golden (TailGaters Pub) at 309-261-8452 , email: info@tailgaters-pub.com , I attached the event flyer to the email as well or you can go to www.facebook.com/TailGatersPub and find it there too.
Thanks, Greg MEET YA AT THE PUB
