SUPPORTING ACTIVE DUTY, DEPLOYED MILITARY
THE 7TH ANNUAL CLASSIC ROCK 104.5/EDWARDS LAW FIRM
“ROCK & RIDE”
07/26/2016 Corpus Christi, TX. For immediate release…The 7th annual Classic Rock 104.5/Edwards Law Firm ROCK & RIDE will be held August 25 – August 27, 2016. The motorcycle fun run is the largest local motorcycle event in the Coastal Bend. It is also the only motorcycle event that donates 100% of the registration fees to a non-profit.
This year, the proceeds will once again go to support the morale of our deployed military through Operation: Cigars for Warriors (www.cigarsforwarriors.org). Last year, we were able to raise almost $12,000 for the organization.
The event has been expanded from two to three days this year. It kicks off Thursday, August 25th with “Cigars on the Patio”, an evening of food, drinks, music and cigars. 100% of the ticket proceeds and the silent auction from this event go directly to the non-profit.
The ROCK & RIDE Packet Pick-Up Party on Friday, August 26th has been expanded to include a free concert, open to the public. Flanagan’s Downtown presents “Even it Up, the ultimate Heart tribute” headlining the show at Brewster Street Ice House. Opening the concert is local favorite, Lady Katherine.
The fun run kicks off at Corpus Christi Harley Davidson on Saturday, August 27th at 9:00am with a free breakfast for all riders. After hitting 6 stops around Corpus Christi Bay, Padre Island, Port Aransas and Portland, the ride ends with a huge party from 12 noon -5:00pm. The best hand wins $500 and a trip for 2 to Las Vegas. Worst hand, $250.
The Sames Ford Grand Finale Rock & Ride Concert is Saturday night at Concrete Street Amphitheater. This year, the headliner is “Bricks In The Wall – the sight and sound of Pink Floyd”. Special guests, Something Silky will open the concert.
