Placerville resident Pat Barron and The Center for Violence-Free Relationships invite the community to attend the 7th annual Kacie’s Ride for Hope, a motorcycle ride through Hope Valley, to honor Pat’s sister, Kacie, and other local victims of domestic violence.
In July of 2006, Pat Barron tragically lost his sister, Kacie, as the result of domestic violence. Pat has worked tirelessly to help raise awareness of domestic violence and the damage it causes families and communities. The 7th annual Kacie’s Ride for Hope is an opportunity for the motorcycle community to come together and help raise funds to prevent a tragedy like Kacie’s from occurring again.
Registration for Kacie’s Ride for Hope begins Sept. 8 at 8:30 a.m. and goes until 10:00 a.m. at the Bell Tower on Historic Main Street in Placerville. The cost is $25 per rider and $45 per couple. Motorcycles will roll at 10:30 a.m. and end at Diamond Springs Fire Fighter’s Memorial Hall for great barbecue, music, raffle and fun activities for families. The main prize for the raffle this year is Husqvarna Riding Mower donated by Camino Outdoor Power. All motorcycle makes and models are welcome in the ride. This year there will be a great bike show too, so even if you don’t ride, come check out the awesome bikes on display. To participate in the ride or if you want to come by for the barbecue and music, please go to kaciesrideforhope.com for details, or contact Pat Barron at 530-626-8405.
All proceeds from the event will go to The Center for Violence-Free Relationships. The Center for Violence-Free Relationships is dedicated to building healthy relationships, families and communities free from sexual assault and domestic violence through education, advocacy, and services in western El Dorado County.
