Biker Fusion Fundraiser

When event promoters Carrie Repp of R&R Promotions and Ken Conte of Rise Above Consulting first launched their “Biker Fusion” fundraiser, they had no idea how much the motorcycle industry and other enthusiasts would take to the idea of coming together for a party during Daytona Beach Bike Week that would benefit a great cause.

Five years later and over 60 thousand dollars raised, both Conte and Repp wouldn’t have it any other way and are now organizing their 5th Annual Biker Fusion Party on Thursday, March 15, 2012 at 7:00 PM at the Doghouse Bar and Grill on Main Street in Daytona.

The fundraiser will once again benefit Soldiers’ Angels, a volunteer-led non-profit that provides aid and comfort to active servicemen and women of the U.S. military as well as veterans and their families. Soldiers’ Angels go to great lengths to demonstrate care and concern for those who fight daily for our freedom and safety.

Ken Conte (Event Owner & Owner of Rise Above Consulting) says: “We love seeing how the entire motorcycle community comes together to support our event during Daytona Beach Bike Week.

“People enjoy coming out for the party because it gives motorcycle enthusiasts the opportunity to rub elbows with an impressive list of world-class, A-List motorcycle builders and industry leaders while also raising money for an outstanding cause.”

This year’s fundraising event will also consist of a live auction featuring Precision Billet products, (and still looking for additional items) entertainment and a number of great bikes from an impressive line-up of builders, moto-journalists and industry noteables.

Carrie Repp (Event Organizer, Owner of R&R Promotions) says: “Last year’s dynamic hosts Dave Perewitz and Paul Yaffe will be back again and joined by Steve Broyles to host this year’s party.

“They did a fantastic job of firing up the crowd and getting people to look within and donate even if it was the cost of a beer. It is amazing for us to see the overwhelming support we receive each and every year and it has been an honor to plan and organize an event that benefits such a worthwhile cause.”

Biker Fusion has quickly become an industry staple and event organizers hope to continue raising funds for our troops for many years to come. Event sponsors for the 5th Annual Biker Fusion Party include: The Doghouse Bar and Grill; Kandgcycles.com; Spectro Oil; Rise Above Consulting; R&R Promotions; Hot Leathers; Ride Wright Wheels and Precision Billet.

The event starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the general public for a $25.00 donation at the door with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting Soldiers’ Angels.
