It’s worth a drive or ride to Mill Bay today, because Victoria’s WEEDS will be hosting a fundraiser with everyone gnawing on hot dogs at Thrifty Foods in support of the Westcoast Motorcycle Ride To Live. Then tomorrow, they’ll be trundling out to Luxton for another Ride fundraiser — the third annual WEEDS Show And Shine at Bucky’s Taphouse (the old Glen Lake Inn at 2668 Sooke Road) from noon til 330pm. I’ll be doing some judging for that one; sadly, I won’t be sitting in with the band this time.
The Westcoast Motorcycle Ride To Live is open to all riders, and raises funds for the Prostate Centre, which is on the front lines in the fight against prostate cancer. All money raised on Vancouver Island stays on Vancouver Island, and this year’s fundraising goal is $75,000.
