An awesome year; thank you’s, shout out’s, and results

What an awesome year, sunshine and a clear day made for a beautiful and well organized 93 mile ride spanning three lakes (Chaut, Cassadaga, & Erie). We netted $2927 raised for the CUE this year; with the help of over 100 participants including 71 bikes, other volunteers, and all of our sponsors (see final list below and like these wonderful folks); and we cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation.

Some special Shouts Outs this year; included in the figure above is $166 raised by Tracey Tobias of Ohio, to the Axemen Ohio members who came in and rode with us, a special shout out to Auto Credit of Jamestown- having co-sponsored us every year from the start- you are by far our top donor, and of course our local Axemen NY without whose efforts this run wouldn’t be the same. Thank you so much for all your extra efforts.

Congratulations to this year’s participants; the Hi winner trophy and cash prize went to Joe Latone, the low winner trophy and cash prize went to Rick Johnson, the appreciation trophy for most club participants went to Southern Tier Riders m/c of Kennedy (and thank you as well to runner ups – Brother By Choice m/c and Knights Templar m/c), Dave Gilbert won the 50/50 drawing, and there are a lot of happy raffle winners of all the wonderful merchandise and gift certificates that were donated.

With participants and donors from New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, we are inspired and proud to be fulfilling our mission to spread missing person cases awareness as well as raising money for the CUE foundation, and to be doing it for, and with, such an audience that is this tri-state region.

Here’s looking forward to next June 2020 – RTFE @ Rib fest – Saturday. Thank you.

Same place but a new and improved venue. The village park where the rib fest is held is having several improvements made including the beautiful new boardwalk that runs from the band shell to the boat launch. There is also an exciting new attraction and amenity next door, the Harbor Resort Hotel.

A great year! Thank you to all sponsors, contributors, and participants.

The CUE Foundation and “Ride to Find em” is proud to announce the results of our 5th annual motorcycle poker run fundraiser. Entry fees and raffles resulted in over $2200 being raised for the “Community United Effort” Missing Persons Foundation. This was wonderful and up from last year.

Despite earlier reports, we were once again blessed with good weather and had a great turn out with 72 motorcycles and a total of 96 persons participating.

A special shout out to the NYC Axemen chapter who couldn’t make it this year but sent in a nice donation, thank you.

And, congrats to the following: High hand winner Gary Ingerson of Jamestown, NY / low hand winner Lori Lassen of Frewsburg, NY / Club trophy winner Southern Tier Riders of Kennedy, NY / $365 50/50 winner Jeff Osborne of Youngsville, PA.

2018’s 5th Annual Ride – updates

Well this years motorcycle run is almost here and shaping up to be another great one.

Once again the C.U.E. tent will be at the Celoron Rib fest all 4 days and taking sign ups for the run anytime right up through the morning of.

Stop by and get in on the 50/50 drawing and all the raffles to help raise additional monies for the missing persons foundation (all proceeds go to the C.U.E. including those from the run).

Again this year we have many awesome donations including services and merchandise from area businesses and a special shout out goes to the 2 big items this year; a repeat – Day sail package on Chautauqua lake from Ready About Sailing; and a new donation – Party Bus rental from Maynard’s Limousine.

Thank you so much to all our contributors and the Axemen firefighters M/C.

Everyone raved about last years route and once again the Axemen, the official sponsor of the Ride to Find em, are planning another great run (2018’s map). The first stop will be the Luensman Overlook in Brocton, take a break, hydrate, check out the awesome scenery.

The mid/long stop will be the Pier at Dunkirk on Lake Erie, and again this year there will be lots of activity including vendors, live music, and the oldest fire boat still in operation will be docked which you can tour.

The third stop will be a new one for us, the Whiskey Hill Saloon. A great choice, biker friendly establishment, and we’re grateful to have them hosting us for the first time.

Our final stop will be back at Celoron on Chautauqua Lake at the annual Rib fest where when we return there will be live bands playing, the beverage tents open along with food and other vendors, the CUE tent will tally the run results and hand out prizes and trophies. Later in the evening there will be the raffle drawings and the 50/50 you need not be present to win, and for anyone who is present there will be fireworks again that we hear will be even better than last year.

Another year, promises another fun filled day for a very important cause.
