The American Legion Riders at McPherson Post 24 are holding a drawing to win a motorcycle to raise funds to support veterans.

The drawing will be held at 3 p.m. July 19 at the Kansas Veteran’s and Family Reunion at El Dorado Lake. 

They will be giving away a 2000 Custom APC, with Spirit SR 100, 130 HP, 118 cubic inch motor, Rev Tech 6-Speed Transmission, Custom Paint, Billet Forward Controls, 2 into 1 Thunderheader and Gel filled solo seat.

Tickets are available for a $20 donation. Those entering must be 18 years of age and need not be present to win. Chances of winning are at least one in 1,500, depending on how many tickets are sold.

The motorcycle is appraised at over $20,000 and was donated to the McPherson American Legion Riders by a gentleman who wishes to remain anonymous.

As specified by the donor, a majority of funds raised will be used to purchase a shuttle van for the VA hospitals in Kansas. This van will provide transportation to VA hospitals for veterans who normally cannot travel to on their own to receive treatment. 

Any remaining funds will be used to purchase big screen TVs for the VA hospitals and  the veterans’ and soldiers' homes in Kansas.

The cycle will be on display at several rallies and events throughout the spring and summer and tickets can be obtained then. On July 6, it will be on display in Cassoday.

For ticket availability, contact Kent Stiawalt at 620-242-5080, Eric Rauh at 620-242-9132 or Don Behrens at 620-245-4252.
