Please consider a sponsorship or donation to the Goodtimers Foundation. The Goodtimers Foundation was born out of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on our country. It was a real awakening to all Americans. We came to realize that our true heroes don’t hit home runs or throw touchdown passes. We found a new appreciation for the public servant, specifically our police, firefighters, and EMS personnel. As did many Americans, we asked ourselves, “What can we do”? In response, we organized a motorcycle rally to raise funds for the benefit of police and firefighters in New York City. The Goodtimers managed to bring together over 1,000 motorcycles for the rally and post-ride events. The first and second annual Freedom Rides raised over $70,000 for New York City’s first responders.
As a result of our success and the feeling that patriotism and philanthropy are not just “one time” things, we decided to continue the annual Freedom Ride, distributing each year’s proceeds to our local law enforcement agencies and community charities. We organized a “Big Hearts” dance and raised approximately $140,000 for Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center. Since 2001, we have raised over $316,000 and have expanded our efforts to support our men and women serving in the military. We send packages monthly to our troops deployed in Afghanistan and contribute to many local causes and foundations supporting our local veterans along with other worthwhile charities (see attached list).
Our major fundraiser is still our Freedom Ride, now in its 15th year, and we are launching our corporate sponsorship initiative. With your help we hope to expand our impact in the community. The enclosed sponsor’s sheet outlines our program, and the levels of recognition for your contribution.
A sponsorship would be greatly appreciated, or a donation of any kind; a gift certificate, raffle basket item, etc. is helpful as well. The attached form explains where to send your donation – or contact any Goodtimer.
