The Hit the Road on a Harley motorcycle rally and raffle will be 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset. The event is a fund-raiser for the center and will provide support for the region's youth and future business leaders.
Tickets are $10 each for a chance to win a 2010 Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide, valued at nearly $13,000, and a $500 gift card from Wildcat Harley-Davidson in London for custom accessories for the motorcycle.
Raffle ticket buyers do not need to be present to win, but motorcycle clubs and organizations in southern and Eastern Kentucky are being encouraged to organize rides to the center for the free rally, which will feature entertainment, food, a silent auction and motorcycle product vendors.
The first 300 people to arrive at the rally will receive an exclusive "Got chrome?" T-shirt from event partner and center affiliate Tour Southern and Eastern Kentucky.
All proceeds from the raffle will go toward the center's three youth programs — Rogers Scholars, Rogers Explorers and the Entrepreneurial Leadership Institute — which are supported exclusively through charitable contributions from people, foundations and organizations, and fund-raising efforts.
To buy raffle tickets, go to Centertech.com, call Jessica Melton at the center, (606) 677-6000, or go to the center, 2292 South U.S. 27 (traffic light 15) in Somerset.
