25th annual Quaid Harley-Davidson Toy Ride raises over $7,000 for hospital
Harleys and motorcycles of every caliber came out to Quaid Harley-Davidson for the 25th annual toy ride benefitting Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital (LLUCH) on Sunday, Dec 17.
Dealer co-owners and uncle-nephew duo Glenn and Brandon Quaid both acknowledged the importance of the event while addressing the crowd of hundreds of people in attendance.
“It’s important for us to be here and show the kids some love,” said Brandon Quaid.
Over $7,000 was raised for the hospital through ride registrations and independent donations. Additionally, new, unwrapped toys were donated by riders and event attendees, filling a box truck with goodies for patients at LLUCH.
“Once again, our bikers have come together for a great cause,” said Glenn Quaid.
Loma Linda Fire Department was also on hand with a fire truck for photo ops before they led the leather-clad riders through the streets of the city toward the hospital.
