During their annual meeting and dinner on Monday August 6th in Spearfish, SD, the International motorcycle group Hamsters raised these funds through a silent auction.

Hamster member Paul Yaffe received the Chrome Heart Award presented by Children Care to honor individuals in the motorcycle world whose philanthropic support and civic duty represents everything positive in the industry and sport of motorcycling. This spring, Paul and a group of his Hamsters friends gathered at Arizona Bike Week and raised $32,000 to help bring outreach and outpatient services to children in the Black Hills region of South Dakota.

Children’s Care Of Rapid City, SD is affiliated with Children’s Care Hospital & School based in Sioux Falls.Children’s Care is a private, independent, non-profit organization with a mission to help children with special needs reach their full potential. The organization as a whole served nearly 2000 children per year.

    Good job,
    The Hamsters have been doing a lot of good for the Sturgis area for a long time. This helps all of motorcycling in the end.
