We're Painting it Forward!
Join us in FUNdraising with the folks behind the Chicagoland Toys for Tots Motorcycle Parade! Fundraising efforts for The Parade continue throughout the year to defer the cost of The Parade itself and to purchase toys. Chicagoland Toys for Tots volunteers distribute these toys to individuals, group homes, shelters, hospitals and youth groups throughout the city. Send in a photo of your ride (car, bike, boat, etc!) by July 23rd!
If you don't have a ride, paint your pet instead! We'll print it on a 16"x20" canvas and our artists will help you bring it to life with paint (and a little help from our bartenders).
Join us in supporting Chicago's Children!
Sunday, August 6th

Welcome to the
Toys For Tots
"The World's Greatest Motorcycle Parade" is an annual event in Chicago on the first Sunday in December.
Each year 40 to 50 thousand motorcycle riders come to Chicago to ride together and donate toys for needy children.
All motorcyclists are welcome to participate in The Parade, provided they meet the following two requirements.
Every rider must bring at least one new, unwrapped toy to donate, and each motorcycle must display a clear, unobscured license plate.
Thanks for your support, and please consider becoming a TFT Parade volunteer. It takes many hands to organize The Parade.
Help is always needed.
