DAYTONA BEACH, FL -- The Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse announced today it will host a second BIKER FUSION event to benefit Soldiers' Angels, an organization committed to increasing the morale of deployed troops, helping veterans return home healthy, and bringing comfort to wounded soldiers. This event will be held at the Main Street Doghouse Bar & Grill during Biketoberfest on Thursday, October 16th at 7 p.m.

1st_004After the success of the first BIKER FUSION event, held during Daytona Bike Week in March 2008, the motorcycle industry and Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse are teaming up once again to help support our troops and this great cause. During the event, attendees will have a chance to see great bikes from some of the industry's top builders and mingle with the A-list of the motorcycle industry all while supporting the troops and having a great time at the Doghouse Bar & Grill.

"BIKER FUSION was designed to maintain and support the camaraderie of our industry with a great event through which we could come together and raise money for a worthwhile cause," said Carrie Repp of R&R Promotions.  "Sponsors help underwrite the event so we can keep ticket donation prices at a minimum and put on a fun party.  Everyone is asked to give a donation of whatever they can afford and sign our message board that we send to the troops."

This year's special guest hosts will be Bruce Rossmeyer of Destination Daytona, Christian Clayton of Sucker Punch Sally's and Billy Lane of Choppers Inc.  Steve Broyles of Stevenson's Cycle, Bill Dodge of Bling's Cycle, Christian Clayton of Sucker Punch Sally's and Paul Cox of Paul Cox Industries will all have bikes on display all weekend long as part of the Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse's rolling fleet of the hottest customs. These builders, along with key media figures and motorcycle icons, will also be making appearances to chat with guests and show their support for our troops. The BIKER FUSION event is by invitation only but the general public can buy entrance and rub elbows with the industry elite for just $50

1st_001The first BIKER FUSION event raised $30,000 with the specific mission of providing funds to outfit a convoy support center in Iraq, Camp TQ (Taqaddum). Thanks to the generosity of the motorcycle industry and motorcycle fans, Camp TQ now has a new recreation area along with new computers, printers and hardware for a Net-Café. The money also helped provide soldiers in the 72nd MP Company Nevada National Guard, 140th Nevada National Guard and the 101 Airborne in Iraq with new electronics, watches, sheets and some other well deserved comforts of home. Here's what some of the soldiers said about the things they received from the prior events proceeds:

         I can honestly say that the PS3 game system you sent has overall been our largest morale builder companywide.  I appreciate it and my Soldiers definitely appreciate it.  I think it (whether they know this or not) makes the Soldiers feel like they're back at home in their living room or bedroom for the few hours while they're playing it - providing relief from the rigors of their daily grind and the heat... Jacob Gonzales, 1SG, USA

        They [the soldiers] fight over the play station and which movies to watch. They played for a long period of time[so long] that one of the TVs [has] now gone dead ( the original old one). Sometimes they are so happy and forget to go to sleep. Then their commander would come out screaming and yelling for the unit to go to bed. You should see the look on their faces. They are like little children being yelled at by their Daddy to put all the games away and go to bed... Camp TQ Soldier
