New! Friday night Kick-Off Rally

Every year on the third Saturday of August, the roar of  more than 150 motorcycles can be heard throughout our region. They are here for the Last Mile Ride, an event created in 2006 by a Gifford nurse and motorcycle rider, Lynda McDermott, to support special services for patients in advanced illness or at the end of their life. Over the years, the ride has grown to include a 38.4 mile cyclist ride, and a 5k fun run/walk. It also brings visitors from all over New England and New York, and beyond, to our valley.

This year, the Chamber is working with Gifford and the Three Stallion Inn on a joint fundraiser to kick off the ride the night before it takes place. The Kick-Off Rally includes a happy hour, dinner, dancing and door prizes. Not only will it be a fun evening, it serves to provide travelers a place to meet up before the yearly event while giving residents  who do not participate in the ride a way to be part of the wonderful crusade!

Dinner will be a tasty buffet cooked up by Willy B’s Catering and featuring:

Lemon Balsamic Chicken Skewers
Rosemary & Tarragon Beef Skewers
Honey Jalapeno Shrimp Skewers
Mixed Veggie Skewers
Caesar Salad
Vegetable Strudel
Red Potato and Roasted Red Pepper with Arugula Salad
Fresh Fruit Platter
Mixed Berry Crisp with Ice Cream

Live music will be performed after dinner featuring local singer (and Gifford staffer) Sanie Bly accompanied by a band that will make you want to dance, dance, dance! There will be door prizes too. All this at one of the nicest venues in the area for only $25 per person. Tickets are limited and must be reserved in advance by Aug. 13. Tickets will not be sold at the door. 

The evening’s agenda:
  • 5:30 p.m. - Happy Hour
  • 6:30 p.m. - Dinner is Served
  • 7:00 p.m. - Program & Door Prizes
  • 7:30 p.m. - Music and Dancing

This promises to be a very special evening of celebration, with all proceeds being shared by the Chamber and the Last Mile Ride fund. 

Invite your friends to join you and make a party of it. 

To purchase your tickets, contact the Chamber at (802) 728-9027. Don’t let the tickets sell out before you get yours.
