From a fashion standpoint, Easter pastels may not mesh well with the black leather worn by Harley riders. But the two were a perfect match during Ray Price Harley-Davidson's Easter Basket Ride held over the weekend.
Throughout March, residents of the Raleigh, N.C., area donated Easter baskets with goodies to share with local youth. Bikers from across the Triangle gathered this past Saturday to ride in caravan with the more than 350 Easter baskets, delivering them to children who gathered at Radiant Church in for its Easter celebration.
“The looks on kids’ faces when 100 Harley riders arrived was terrific,” said Kris Weiss, director of marketing and promotions, Ray Price Harley-Davidson. “Our riders get such a kick each year out of watching their jaws drop, and then turn into smiles, as we pull up with the Easter baskets.”
During the Easter celebration, children were invited to pose for photos with riders and their motorcycles.
Radiant Church hosts its Easter egg hunt and celebration every year for children from neighboring communities. This is the second year in a row where more than 350 baskets were delivered to local kids in attendance.
“Easter is a celebration of renewal and hope,” said Pastor Nathan Rouse. “We’re thrilled to have the support of Ray Price Harley-Davidson for this fun event because it brings hope to so many children.”
