Deacons of Deadwood Make Dreams come True
For the fourth year in a row, the Deacons of Deadwood Motorcycle Club helped the Dream League continue its mission of "Making Dreams Come True" with a large donation during Opening Day festivities, Feb. 27, at First Colony Park.
Established in 2007, the Dream League competes in the Challenger Division of First Colony Little League. Currently, more than 100 physically and/or intellectually challenged youngsters play in the Dream League, supported by more than 150 teenaged "Angels in the Outfield," who give of their time to play alongside the Dream Leaguers.
Community volunteers fill out the roles of Dream League board members, managers, coaches, and umpires, but financial donations are needed to keep the entire program moving forward.
That's where Deacons of Deadwood got involved, with president Geoff Seaman, charity committee representatives Mike Arabucki and Fred Tyler, and several members of the all-volunteer motorcycle club presenting Dream League head Bruce Hicks with a check for $5,000.
Deacons of Deadwood is a local motorcycle club with a diverse membership consisting of top corporate executives and blue-collar workers bonded by a love of motorcycles and donating their time and talents to bettering their community. Formed more than 14 years ago, Deacons of Deadwood is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.
