FAIRLAWN — The annual Rubber City Harley-Davidson and its Harley Owners Group (H.O.G) chapter’s Bikers for Boobs poker run Aug. 20 raised over $ 31,500 for cancer resource center Stewart’s Caring Place this year. At the Sept. 11 H.O.G. meeting, the chapter presented a check to Jeannine Marks from Stewart’s, as shown above.
“We are honored to be able to support Stewart’s,” said Mike Davis, dealer principal of Rubber City Harley-Davison. “They are such a great asset to our community.”
Organizers said the poker run was supported by 140-plus volunteers and 1,120 participants. This year’s ride was dedicated to a longtime chairperson of the committee, Sandy Hanawalt, who died in the past year.
Stewart’s is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that began as a grassroots effort led by the family and friends of Dr. Stewart Surloff, whose cancer journey ended in the fall of 2001. The center carries on his legacy by providing free support services to individuals and families touched by cancer.
