Wading River, NY - November 16, 2016 - The children and adult residents of Little Flower Children and Family Services of New York will welcome the Long Island Harley Owners Group (LI HOGs) on Sunday, December 4, 2016 to its Monsignor John T. Fagan Campus in Wading River for the 30 th LIHOGs Annual Toy Run. The LI HOGs will continue their long standing tradition of collecting and delivering holiday presents to the children of Little Flower, one of the largest and most respected agencies providing critical programs and services to children, families and adults with developmental disabilities in New York City and across Long Island.
Little Flower has been fortunate enough to receive the support of the LI HOGs and we are thrilled to continue this great tradition! In what has come to be known as Little Flower’s “Unofficial Kick-Off to the Holiday Season” and Long Island’s longest and oldest toy run, the LI HOGs, after riding for over 25 miles will arrive in formation. The group will be led by none other than Santa himself followed by a parade of bikes filled with all sorts of goodies for the children on the campus.
“As the holiday season approaches, the members of the Long Island Harley Owners Group along with all of the other supporting clubs who attend are happy to continue with our Annual Toy Run to Little Flower Children and Family Services. Riding out on our motorcycles led by Santa himself not only puts smiles on the children but it also puts tremendous smiles on the bikers themselves” said director of the LI HOGs, Robert “Bob” Brinka.
“After experiencing my first HOGs run last year, I know what a phenomenal event this is and I am eagerly looking forward to welcoming them again, especially as we celebrate this milestone year of the ride. We are honored to have loyal and generous support from the riders and can’t wait to see them coming down our driveway, bringing with them holiday cheer” said Chief Executive Officer, Corinne Hammons.
