Charity Ride Information

Last updated 8-23-23

NEW FOR 2023
We are reducing the number of raffle tables to 1 and it will be a "Chinese raffle" style where you will put your raffle tickets into a bag in front of the item you are interested in. The silent auction will once again be on line only with your phone.

THE CAUSE

The Kettle Moraine ATV Association, The Lakeshore ATV/UTV club, and Wisconsin ATV/UTV Association will again host the 16th Annual ATV/UTV Charity Ride on October 28th at The Washington County Fair Park in West Bend. Again, this year we will be raising money for "Make-A-Wish Wisconsin."  Thank you to everyone who participated, sponsored, donated and/or contributed in any way.  You will be able to ride your ATV/UTV directly from the fair park to the road routes of the Kettle Moraine State Forest.

PLEDGES

Start by printing a Pledge Form from the tab on the left and round up all the donations you can from family, friends, coworkers, school or church goers, or even other club members. If people donate only $5 at a time, that amount will add up quickly.  These pledges will count towards your entry registration. Prizes are given for the top 3 pledge earners. Don't worry however, if you have a hard time asking for money, you can simply pay the $25 (individual) or $50 (Immediate family) at registration. 

PARKING

There is plenty of parking at the Washington County Fair Park and Convention Center.  We are currently working with the City of West Bend on temporary road routes to get from the Fair Park to the route system.

THURSDAY

Let the fun begin. Meet at 9:00am at the Fair park and lets ride the day away. 

FRIDAY

Couldn't make it Thursday, then Friday may be the day for you. Meet at the Fair park at 9:00am ready to see the sights of the Kettle Moraine. We will ride until about 4:00pm and then head to a local grill afterwords for a fish fry or other culinary delights. You get 3 days or riding for one charitable donation price.

SATURDAY MORNING REGISTRATION

Saturday registration will be 7:30-9:00am at the Washington County Fair Park and Convention Center located at 3000 Hwy PV in West Bend. (Hwy's 45 and PV).  You will be given a wrist band for each person in your party. This will be your Saturday dinner ticket, raffle ticket number, 50/50 number, and door prize ticket so do not loose it. Dinner is 1 time through and then until it's gone. You will have a chance to buy a bulb from the big star for a chance to win a gift to be determined as we get closer. The silent Auction will be totally on line this year, so you can download the GiveSmart on-line bidding app as well. This is a credit card only app so you will need a credit card.

THE RIDE-GUIDED

At 8:45am we'll have a riders meeting followed by a group photo. There are 4 guided rides to choose from about the same time and distance leaving at 9:00am and returning about 4:00pm. These will be limited to 25 machines so look for a DESTINATION PASS at registration. 
  • One going to Sunset on the Water in Taycheedah on Lake Winnebage having a burger and brat lunch special. 
  • One heading to The Feed Mill in Lomira having a pulled pork lunch special. 
  • The third is heading to Mercer T's in Clyman in Dodge county. No lunch special here so lunch will be off the menu and will take longer.
  • The 4th guided ride is the multiple stop ride is heading to Red Cabin in Dotyville and leaving last for the late arrivals and those who prefer a shorter ride with more stops. No PASS needed and no lunch special. 
Look for the ride leaders with a sign to their destination lined up in the southern grass parking lot. Hop in line where you want to go.  We will be leaving right after the picture so please be unloaded, gassed up, and ready to go.

THE RIDE-ON YOUR OWN

You can head completely on you own or small group but please wait until after the first 4 groups leave. The temporary routes will be clearly signed but will not be on Ride Command. Try to be back around 4:00 pm so there is plenty of time to load up by 5:00pm for the evening festivities. 

SATURDAY EVENING FESTIVITIES

DINNER Sponsored by many Wisconsin Powersports Dealers

Dinner will be from 5:00 to 6:00pm.  Please do not miss this window.  Food is included with your admission AND there is a cash bar for refreshment. 


NOT ON AN ATV, NO PROBLEM

For those who do not partake in the  ride itself, but just want to hang out, check out the raffles, maybe bid on a silent auction item or two, and just share in the experience, we would love to have you. Everyone's welcome, you just won't get to go through the food line. Come around 6 pm and enjoy the fun!

RAFFLES 

We will start selling tickets throughout the day and we will come around at 5:30pm. Raffle tickets sell 3 for $5.00, 15 for $10.00, or 40 for $20. There will be some incredible baskets on the tables that you'll have multiple chances to win. Since there will be alcohol involved, only 21 and older can claim the raffle prizes. We do not take credit cards for raffle tickets, cash and checks only. Rather than having to stare at 40 numbers when one is called and figuring out if you have a winner, all you will need to do is look at your wristband and see if that matches. When you purchase raffle tickets, either us or yourselves will write your wristband number on every ticket and then that number will be called. You won't have any tickets to look at, just look at your wristband number.

THE STAR

There will be an illuminated star that you can purchase a $5.00 bulb for and have a chance to win a hand made quilt by one of our own members. When all the bulbs are replaced from white to blue, we will pick a number, if your bulb number matches, you go home a little warmer then you came.


SILENT AUCTION

We will again have many items to bid on and you can pick up some very nice treasures. There will be stuff for all interests and desires. This year we will be using the GiveSmart online app for bidding. The app will allow you to bid on your items all day and night from the comfort of your seat or ATV! No more paper watching. If you need assistance, find one of the Make-A-Wish team members to help you out. For easy check-out you will be able to use a debit/credit card this year. Items will be displayed at the Silent Auction table.

Sign-up during registration or after the ride.

 

CHECK PRESENTATION

After all of the activities conclude, stick around and see how much was raised and will be donated to Make-A-Wish Wisconsin.  A group photo will be taken.
