36th Annual Toys 4 Tots Run for motorcycles

Special to The Log

The Emerald Coast Harley Owner’s Group (HOG) Chapter #3605, sponsored by Emerald Coast Harley Davidson, will be doing their 36th Annual Toys 4 Tots Run on Sunday, Nov. 15. Proceeds will benefit the Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center and Children in Crisis. Last year, the successful operation collected more than 1,000 toys and raised over $15,000 to benefit the two organizations.

All motorcycles are welcome to participate in the Run. Entry fee is $10 per participant and a new toy or gift card. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m. at Sam’s Club parking lot in Fort Walton Beach. The motorcycle bike parade starts at 11 a.m. from Sam’s Club and ends at the Niceville Mullet Festival site.

Parade and festivities will include music, food, hi-lo games, motorcycle contests and more. For further information or to make donations, contact Joe Clifton at 850-678-4289, Vito Tomasello at 850-818-5652, or call the Emerald Coast Harley Davidson dealership at 850-862-4706.

Don’t own a motorcycle? You can still help. This year, a Toy Box will be set up to take toy donations at the Emerald Coast Harley Davidson dealership at 788 Beal Parkway in Fort Walton Beach. Or, donations can be given to any of the HOG chapter members.
