FRONTENAC — Soon residents of Frontenac will hear the roar of motorcycles down McKay.
The rumbling and ground trembling will come from Bikers Against Child Abuse, who are advocates for children who have suffered physical, sexual, emotional or other forms of abuse.
B.A.C.A. members serve as a contact for children based on the child and his or her family’s need — which could include a presence at their home, visiting the child at school, therapy and more.
The group will be hosting a dice run, on Aug. 11 and a raffle, the proceeds of which will be going to benefit children. The event will include prizes, live music and an auction.
Registration will start at 11 a.m. at Shooters on Aug. 11. The cost is $20 for ride and meal $10 for passenger and $5 for an extra hand.
At noon, the group will leave Shooters and head out to Red Ball, then to Hogs & Hotrods, Cherokee Legion and will finish at Bender on 7.
They will also be selling raffle tickets, which are available now until the event.
Tickets are $1 each for a chance to win a Sig Sauer P238 Pistol, sponsored by John’s Sport Center. The drawing will be on Aug. 11 at Benders on 7. The winner does not have to be present to win.
People can purchase a ticket from any B.A.C.A. member or call 620-235-9280.
All proceeds from the ride and raffle will go to abused children.
“I like to say we’re going to have an auction, going to have a beer and have a good time,” B.A.C.A. Member Plumber said.
