Riding a motorcycle for a cause is what many Anderson County residents did yesterday.  Dozens of motorcycle riders gathered at the Hill of Beans BBQ to be apart of the 2 Wheels 4 Paws Benefit Bike Run to help the Anderson Humane Society.

The bike run was organized by the newly formed Chrome Angelz Bluegrass Bourbon Girlz Women’s Riding Club.  Started in November of last year by Lawrenceburg resident, Wendy Burkett, the new and first Kentucky chapter of the Chrome Angelz is all about helping the community through fundraisers and charitable events while providing a way for women motorcycle enthusiasts to enjoy riding together.

Wendy, who is the president the chapter, explained that they received tremendous support from the community for their ride on Saturday, including nine commercial sponsors and many donations.  “The community really pitched in and really helped us out and gave us a lot of great donations,” Wendy said.

The ride also included a number of silent auctions, door prizes, and raffles where tickets were given for donated pet supplies.  DJ Hooty Hoo was also there along with a live band and a police escort by an Anderson County Sheriff’s Deputy through the county.

Karen Tucker, president of the humane society, and their mascot Wiggles were there to thank the dozens of riders. “We’re excited for the Chrome Angelz to help us out with a benefit run.  They run for charity, and we’re they’re charity today,” Karen said.

All proceeds from the run went to the humane society’s spay/neuter program as well as for general vet and operating bills.  According to Karen, this was the first benefit run by the Chrome Angelz for the humane society.
