Ontario, OR -- Organizers are proud to announce that registration has begun for the Second Annual High Desert Motorcycle Rally to be held June 27-29 in Ontario, Oregon. Nestled between the Snake River and the Owyhee river drainage, the scenic location provides the perfect backdrop for the charity ride and weekend events.
The event will start at the Train Depot, 300 Depot Lane, in downtown Ontario, Oregon.
Last year, High Desert Motorcycle Rally participants raised more than $4,000 for local charities. This year, event organizers are planning for even more riders and plan to give away even more money. The 2008 rally will raise funds for The American Cancer Society Relay for Life; Downtown Ontario Renovation Projects; and Locks of Love, an organization that makes hairpieces for children less than 18 years of age suffering from hair loss due to cancer and other medical issues.
A highlight of the event will be the return of Actor Mickey Jones, a national celebrity biker, humanitarian, musician and movie star. Also joining the event this year will be Kendrick Lester, comedy hypnotist extraordinaire and music from Wild Card and Malichi!
Participants can also purchase tickets to win fantastic raffles items, including a 2008 Harley Davidson and a one-of-a-kind commemorative autographed Harley gas tank. The gas tank has been autographed by 12 of the most influential people in the bike-building industry including industry greats such as Jesse James, Arlen and Cory Ness, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. of Orange County Choppers, Chica and many more. Both of these fabulous prizes were obtained with the help of event sponsor Birds of Prey Harley Davidson in Caldwell, Idaho.
The three day event will also feature a Celebrity Poker Run led by Mickey Jones, a poker walk, a street dance with live music, loud pipe contest, tattoo contest, bike games, bike & car shows, Naughty School Girl Costume contest plus many food and product vendors. Come enjoy this weekend of festivities in the quaint and scenic town of Ontario, Ore., and be a part of this exciting charity event.
