The Seminole Hard Rock Roadhouse made it's final stop December 17, 2008 for 2008 at the Fort Lauderdale Harley-Davidson "Bikers Bash" on Friday, December 12th at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The night of entertainment and fund-raising was underwritten by the Seminole Tribe of Florida with all proceeds from live and silent auctions going to the Boys & Girls Club of Broward County.
Earlier in the day, the weekend festivities officially kicked off with a police escorted motorcycle ride from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to the Admirals Club Marine Academy, Sunrise Harley-Davidson and along the beach concluding at Quarterdeck Restaurant. The "Bikers Bash" celebration on Friday night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino featured an intimate performance by Big Kenny from Big and Rich, songwriter and former Aerosmith bandmate, Richie Supa, Grammy Award winning songwriter Brett James and NASCAR legend Kyle Petty who also performed (not everyone knows Kyle had a recording contract in his earlier years). Other celebrities were also there to lend their support to the Boys and Girls Club of Broward County including supermodel Niki Taylor, NASCAR driver Burney Lamar, retired NBA All-Star Glen Rice, TV stars Ami James and Yoji from the hit show Miami Ink.
The weekend of events culminated on Sunday, December 14th, with the title sponsor, Seminole Tribe's "South Florida President's Council 21st Annual Christmas Toys in the Sun Run." This is recognized as the world's longest motorcycle parade and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital as well collected over 20,000 toys for children. The 25- mile ride with over 30,000 motorcycles was lead by The Seminole Tribe, featured builders Dave Perewitz, Donnie Smith, Eddie Trotta and Athena "Chickie" Ransom from Vagabond Choppers and the list of celebrities.
