Seattle Area Machinists Ride to Benefit Guide Dogs of America

IAM District 751 held its 15th annual All Breed Puppy Putt motorcycle ride and show to raise money for Guide Dogs of America (GDA).

Among the day’s motorcycle riding events were a poker run, slow ride, jousting and bowling. A motorcycle show followed with awards for best custom, touring, metric and best of show.

“It was a really good day raising money for a great cause,” said District 751 President Jon Holden. “Thanks to all the riders, volunteers and sponsors who helped make the event a success.”

A Harley-Davidson Sportster XL1200C was raffled off as a grand prize. Participants also took part in a 50/50 drawing, dined on delicious barbeque and enjoyed live music, all to support the IAM’s no. 1 charity.

“I am moved by the hard work and generosity of everyone involved in making this event a success. Lives will be changed forever with the money that was raised,” said Western Territory General Vice President Gary Allen.

The event has brought in more than $5,000 so far, but donations are continuing to come in. Volunteers from area local lodges businesses all helped to make the day a success.
