The 18th Annual Hot Harley Nights was held July 12-14 in Sioux Falls and event organizers are proud to announce that a check will be written to Make-A-Wish® South Dakota for $165,691.32.
This total does not reflect the in-kind donations that total over $120,000 plus the countless hours J&L Harley-Davidson and local organizers invest organizing, planning and preparing for this large event. The 18-year running total for Hot Harley Nights is now nearly two million dollars donated to Make-A-Wish South Dakota! This money will be used to grant wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses throughout the state of South Dakota.
In 2013, over 1300 participants from 13 different states registered for the casino run. The motorcycle parade included over 4500 motorcycles and was enjoyed by thousands of spectators. Hot Harley Nights had 59 corporate sponsors plus 90 additional companies/individuals that contributed in some way. Over 349 Make-A-Wish volunteers made the event possible. An estimated crowd of over 35,000 people enjoyed the free Saturday evening festivities at the Falls Park West venue.
Mark your calendars now for the 19th annual Hot Harley Nights™, scheduled for July 11-13, 2014!
This incredible event supports the Make-A-Wish® South Dakota, and has raised nearly $2 million dollars so that children with life threatening diseases can experience a “wish come true.”
Hot Harley Nights™ involves a casino run, motorcycle parade, live music, raffles, bike show, silent auction, great food and an outdoor party at Falls Park West. As always, our goal is to expand the event, draw more people, raise more money, grant more wishes and have more fun. We hope to see you there!
