Bikes and Breakfast for the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction
To celebrate Laconia Motorcycle Week, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani’s Belmont office invited bikers to kick their stands up for a good cause – the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction. For a minimum donation of $10/person, visitors could fuel up with pancakes before taking a two-hour ride ending at Patrick’s Pub in Gilford, where there was a raffle and prizes.
Nearly 40 people came for breakfast, enjoying the meal outside in the warm sunshine and also checking out a model tiny house. Granite State Tiny Homes is displaying a model custom home at the Belmont office, and tours are offered daily from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. through June 17.
After breakfast, about 30 riders made the trip from Belmont to Gilford, which toured back roads and passed Lake Winnipesaukee. At Patrick’s Pub, the 50/50 raffle winner generously donated their winnings back to the Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction. The event raised just over $770 for the auction.
The Greater Lakes Region Children’s Auction is a nonprofit that helps community organizations in the Central New Hampshire region. Each December the volunteer-run auction takes to the airwaves to raise funds for children in need. In addition to the auction itself, many people opt to donate household items or cash year-round to support the organization’s mission. Since its inception, over $4.5 million dollars have been raised for local charities.
