Cruisers raise bucks for Children’s Charity

The Southern Cruisers Riding Club of Comox raised just over $2,200 for the Children’s Charity.

The Southern Cruisers Riding Club of Comox raised just over $2,200 at their recent Halloween Howl Masquerade and Dance fundraiser for Variety — the Children’s Charity at the Merville Hall in Courtenay.

Special thanks goes to all the businesses that donated items for the event, to the Impalas for entertaining the crowd with their incredible dance music and to all the guests who showed their hearts for the children’s charity.

The SCRC is a free, family-oriented motorcycle riding club with chapters all over North America, Europe and Asia. Members of the club focus on the enjoyment and fellowship of riding motorcycles in a safe manner.

The SCRC is involved with many charity fundraising rides, local and long distance rides, overnighters and club dinner rides. For more information on SCRD International visit www.scrcnational.com.
