Bikers for Boobies AZ, the renowned Arizona-based charity, has revved up its engines for the 14th year in a row to combat breast cancer. Teaming up with prominent local businesses and bands, the charity invites community members to be part of this exceptional cause.
The 14th Annual motorcycle event, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 14, is backed by Arizona Bike Week, J&P Cycles Scottsdale, Chuck Franklin Law, and over 20 Valley businesses.
“It is hard to believe that we have been doing this for 14 years,” says Bikers for Boobies AZ President Shelley Brorsen “It’s a great feeling knowing that together, we are raising awareness and fighting all types of cancer with the emphasis on breast cancer. We’re hoping to raise more funding and awareness through this event.”
Kicking off at J&P Cycles, 8606 E. Shea Blvd., in Scottsdale, the day’s journey will conclude with a grand parking lot party at the Dirty Dogg Saloon, 10409 N. Scottsdale Rd. Attendees can look forward to live performances from local musical talents, an array of raffle prizes, a silent auction, and delectable bites from the popular Pizza Butcher food truck.
Bikers for Boobies AZ’s commendable legacy since its inception in 2009 includes providing over 1,000 women with free mammograms. Through its grants program, the charity has also distributed more than $200,000 for survival and medical grants. Furthermore, the charity has generously donated between $1,000 to $10,000 to various organizations aiding families and individuals grappling with cancer. “We are so grateful,” says Treasurer Laura Rasmussen.
In the past, Bikers for Boobies has contributed over $250,000 to charities such as The Singletons, Casting for Recovery, Don’t be a Chump–Check for a Lump, Forth & Bubble, The Joy Bus, and many others. This year, with renewed vigor and a broader partnership with local resources, the charity is poised to make an even bigger impact.
Tickets for the event can be secured at bikers4boobiesaz.org at $30 per individual or $40 for couples. Non-riders are equally welcome to join the festivities with a $20 donation as the entry fee. It’s essential to note that the event caters exclusively to attendees aged 21 and above.
