The Ole Tyme Saloon is hosting its fifth annual Christmas in July Toy Run benefiting kids at Renown Children’s Hospital.
Saturday, July 8
12:00 p.m. convoy leaves Ole Tyme Saloon
12:30 p.m. convoy arrives at Renown Children’s Hospital (Media should plan to arrive at Renown around 12:15 p.m.)
This annual fundraiser is all about bringing smiles to kids’ faces, because the magic of giving can bring happiness to children who need special care all year long, not just the holidays.
The Toy Run is open to all motorcycles and vehicles. Participants are asked to bring an unwrapped toy and can register at Ole Tyme Saloon (1505 Geiger Grade) Saturday morning from 10 a.m. to noon for $20. All the money raised benefits Renown Children’s Hospital.
Once everyone is signed up, the group hits the road and rides to Renown Children’s Hospital where Santa will hand out unwrapped toys and games to patients – giving them their own Christmas in July and allowing the children to relax and focus on just being kids.
After the Toy Run, all participants will head back to the Ole Tyme Saloon for a spaghetti feed and live entertainment by the band, Jacked Up.
