This event is to benefit the Friends of Oswego County Hospice, Inc., an entity committed to supporting Oswego County Hospice through public awareness, professional education and financial assistance for all families in need during a loved one’s final moments.

We have all been touched at some point in our lives by the kindnesses, help and support offered by Oswego County Hospice and this is our way of giving a little something back.

This event is open to friends, supporters, our communities and all motorcycle enthusiasts.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. at the New Haven Fire Department.

Kickstands will be up at 11 a.m. for a scenic 100-mile (approximate) ride with hot dog and soda lunch at the turn, followed by a full pulled pork dinner with cole slaw, macaroni salad and baked beans when the ride returns to the fire department in New Haven.

A live auction will be held at the fire department for the benefit of Hospice of Oswego County at 2:30 p.m.

Price for the event is: $20 per driver and $15 per rider, which includes lunch at the turn and pulled pork dinner.

For a $10 donation, pulled pork dinners will be available to the public any time after noon.

All donations for the live auction are greatly appreciated.

We have received a large selection of donated items already and look forward to other generous donations for this event.

Please visit our Facebook pages at FireandIronStation1438 and Oswego County Comets for pictures of all the donated items; with any questions or comments you may have about the upcoming event or if you have items you would like to donate.
