The all-day event at the Bedford National Guard Armory will include a silent auction, 50/50 drawing, games, music, food and a motorcycle ride. Doors open at 9 a.m. Ride registration is from 9-11 a.m.

Riders are asked to make a $25 donation, which includes food and drinks.

Volunteers are needed to help with the fundraiser, as well as donations for the silent auction.
