Rev up those hogs and rockets and get ready to put the wind in your face.
The annual Pawker Run benefit motorcycle ride for the Frances R. Willis SPCA and Animal Shelter in Dorchester County is Sept. 14.
Now celebrating its 10th year of helping homeless and neglected four-legged friends, this year’s ride is shaping up to be quite the event, say Pawker Run organizers.
The registration/donation fee is $20 per participant and includes a high quality, completely redesigned T-shirt, a well-stocked gift bag, and a barbecue dinner and homemade dessert at the end of the ride, event coordinator and chairman Chuck Botts said.
In addition, members of the Hunley Camp No. 143 will be on hand at the Shrine Club with a full-sized replica of the Hunley on display. Music will be provided by local rock band the Double Nought Spies.
Numerous prizes will be on hand and giveaways will be going on throughout the day.
The Pawker Run features 10 stops along a roughly 75-mile route; two of those stops, the Frances R. Willis Animal Shelter and Lowcountry Harley Davidson, are mandatory. Riders need at least five lottery draws to make an official lottery hand; with 10 stops a rider can double his or her chances of drawing a winning hand.
Registration starts at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 14 at the Dorchester Shrine Club, located at Beech Hill Road in Summerville. The ride is from 11 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and starts and ends at the Shrine Club. Prize awards, dinner, and entertainment will follow.
The rain date is Sunday, Sept. 15.
