Thanks to The O’Sullivan Law Firm, BikerDown recently benefitted from another motorcycle giveaway! Starting last spring, hundreds of people registered to win the bike and, in the process, they also learned about our important nonprofit. Then, on Saturday, September 23, we all gathered at Erico Motorsports to see who would ride away on a new motorcycle. Everyone was so excited!
Scott O’Sullivan said, “This contest is all about raising awareness for BikerDown. They do so many great things for the riding community in Colorado and we want more riders to know about them and support them. Sponsoring this giveaway is one way to introduce more people to this fantastic nonprofit organization.”
The Giveaway Event
Over 100 people braved the driving rain to gather at Erico Motorsports to witness the final stage of the Triumph Motorcycle Contest. In addition to the 10 pre-qualifiers drawn from advance registrations, we drew another 10 names from those who came to the event. That meant 20 people would have a set of keys to try to start the bike.
We lined up the 20 qualifiers, they drew keys and attempted to start the bike. And the winner was…..
John West! And the best part was, John really needed this bike! His motorcycle was recently totaled in an accident!
“When I won, all I could think was, ‘Oh, my God! This is real!’” John told me. “I was so excited I couldn’t stop my hands from shaking.”
And how did BikerDown benefit? In addition to the exposure to hundreds of new riders that the organization received over the past six months, BikerDown received cash donations at the event.
I have a feeling that Scott and The O’Sullivan Law Firm will continue supporting our organization with giveaways. If you’d like to be included on their mailing list, contact them at [Chere, how should they do this?] You never know… you could be the next big winner!
