Thanks for supporting 8th Oney Toy Run effort

Dear editor,

The Bad to The Bone Riders would like to thank everyone that contributed in any way no matter how big or small your contribution was to the 8th Annual Buddy Oney Toy Run.

You helped to make it a huge success. With an outpouring of contributions in the last couple of days we were able to donate a large sum to the less fortunate children of Rockdale and Milam County.

We had over 30 bikes and several cages (cars and trucks) that made our ride. Presentation to Rockdale Christmas Roundup was $4,000.00 worth of toys and $2,918 went to Child Protective Services.

Brady Nelson and cooking crew cooked a very good pot of chili that was donated by Brookshire Brothers of Rockdale for all participants.

Volunteers and bikers braved some very cold windy conditions for the less fortunate children of Milam County.

Thank you everyone once again. We proved when we work together for a common cause we can make a difference.

Thanks and Merry Christmas.
