Bike raffle returning to 2023 Northwoods Fall Ride
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Regional Chamber of Commerce, on Tuesday, May 16, announced that nonprofit Chamber member Wa Wui LLC is bringing the bike raffle back to the 2023 Northwoods Fall Ride.
This year’s Northwoods Fall Ride will be held in Tomahawk from Thursday, Sept. 14 through Sunday, Sept. 17.
“Fall Ride attendees greatly missed the bike raffle the past couple of years, and it is (Wa Wui’s) pleasure to be able to offer a bike raffle again this year,” the Chamber stated in a release.
The motorcycle to be raffled is a 2023 Anniversary Edition Harley-Davidson Heritage Classis Cruiser, number 1,434 of 2,000. The Chamber said the bike is slated to appear around the state before Fall Ride.
Northwoods Harley-Davidson, of Arbor Vitae, delivered the bike to the Tomahawk Chamber on Wednesday, May 24. Members of the Chamber, Harley-Davidson Tomahawk Operations and Wa Wui were on hand for the reveal, and the public was invited to join for a sneak peek.
The Chamber noted that it will also feature a 50/50 cash raffle at this year’s motorcycle rally. The first prize winner will take home 30% of total receipts, while the second prize winner will receive 10%. Third and fourth prizes will receive 5% each.
Tickets for the raffles are one for $10.00 or three for $25.00 and will be available starting Sunday, May 28 at the Tomahawk Main Street’s Memorial Car Show.
After Memorial Day, the Tomahawk and Merrill Chambers of Commerce and Northwoods Harley-Davidson will have tickets available during business hours.
Tickets will also be available on-site during Fall Ride and will not be sold online or via the postal service.
The cash raffle drawing will be held at the SARA Park Arena, 900 W. Somo Ave., Tomahawk, on Saturday, Sept. 16 at 4:45 p.m. The bike raffle will follow at 5 p.m. Raffle ticket buyers are not required to be present to win.
“Proceeds from the Bike Raffle will go to Wa Wui, who maintains the SARA Park Arena building and promotes youth and adult sports and the center,” the Chamber stated. “Proceeds from the 50/50 raffle will further promote the Chamber’s mission and future promotion of Northwoods Fall Ride activities.”
