Riding for a Cause: Motorcycle enthusiasts ride for Pence Place

Ol Skool Tribe presents check to Pence PlaceEngines roared as more than 50 motorcycles departed from the Rockingham Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) organization on a sunny Saturday afternoon in late April. The Ol Skool Tribe, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts from Richmond County, held its fifth annual “Ride for a Cause,” with proceeds benefitting Pence Place, Monarch’s home for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Rockingham. The group raised $6,759.

“Our group loves to ride,” said Gary Holt, president of the Ol Skool Tribe, “And our members really have a heart for children, so this is our way of giving back. It’s all about the kids and what we can do for them.”

Kids and staff from Pence Place sent the riders off with a cheer as they began the trip from Rockingham to Town Creek Indian Mound in Mt. Gilead, some 25 miles away.

“We are grateful to the Ol Skool Tribe,” said Beth Tyler, residential team leader for Pence Place, “Because of this ride and their support, we will be able to install new playground equipment at Pence, and our kids are very excited about that!”
