St. Jude’s to benefit from Pizza Ranch fundraiser Monday, motorcycle ride in September
STERLING – Members of area motorcycle clubs will participate in a fundraiser Monday for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Club members will accept tips and other donations from 5 to 8 p.m. at Pizza Ranch, 3900 E. Lincolnway. In addition, 10 percent of dine-in and carry-out sales those 3 hours will be donated to the hospital.
The local chapter of St. Jude Rides also is gearing up for its next run to raise money for St. Jude’s, which is famous for treating catastrophically ill children at no cost to their families, including hundreds of kids from the Sauk Valley.
Riders, passengers and sponsors still are needed for the 12th annual ride to the Memphis hospital, Sept. 13 to 15.
This year’s goal: $63,000, which is $11,000 more than they raised on the last ride, organizer Gary Fulrath said.
