Santa part of fundraiser in Summitville

SUMMITVILLE — Christmas in August?

Santa Claus will be leading a benefit motorcycle ride Sunday that will raise money for area children and families in need.

And in addition to the Biker Clause Motorcycle Ride there will be a free festival for area children Sunday.

Local motorcycle club PBRC has joined forces with Summitville’s Pay it Forward (PIF) group to host the event that is raising money for the organizations’ Christmas program that will provide gifts for children in need and Christmas dinner for their families, said PIF member Jessica VanDine.

PIF has services all year round like assistance with utility bills and food and PBRC has an annual Christmas program. The groups are joining forces for this year’s Christmas program as well as Sunday’s ride and festival.

Registration for the benefit ride, led by a PBRC member dressed as Santa, will begin at 10 a.m. at the Summitville Community Center. Cost is $10 and one canned food item, with a canned food item being the price for an additional rider.

The ride begins at noon and will go to Kokomo, Tipton and back to Summitville. The motorcycles will have a parade with clowns and a Summitville fire truck.

The free festival begins at 3 p.m. at the Summitville Community center with bounce houses, games and prizes. There will be a tricycle rodeo and a bicycle and motorcycle show with prizes. Children will eat free but there will be hamburgers and hot dogs for sale.

All proceeds go to the Christmas program, VanDine said.

For more information, call her at 754-7504.
