Sammy Hagar and Arlen Ness Create Motorcycle Masterpiece
National Drawing Will Benefit First Candle - Helping to Prevent SIDS and Stillbirth
Red Rocker Sammy Hagar and famed motorcycle icon Arlen Ness are teaming up to raise awareness and funds among motorcycle enthusiasts in support of First Candle, one of the nation’s leading charities dedicated to infant health and survival. A one-of-a-kind motorcycle has been customized by Arlen Ness with original artwork by Sammy Hagar, and will be awarded to the winning ticket holder in a national drawing to benefit First Candle.
“As a father of four children,” says Sammy Hagar, “I would do anything to help prevent the tragedy of SIDS and stillbirth in the United States. It is an honor to help spread awareness about these tragedies in order to save as many babies’ lives as possible.”
‘The Red Rocker Chopper,’ named after ‘Red Rocker’ Sammy Hagar, is valued at $70,000 and will embark on a promotional tour throughout California, Nevada and South Dakota to generate donations and offer tickets for the drawing to motorcycle fans nationwide. The rare bike will make appearances at the Moto Grand Prix (Monterey, CA - July), the Shoreline Sammy Hagar concert (Mountain View, CA – August), Sturgis Bike Rally (South Dakota - August) and other events and locations.
“We are so excited to be working with Sammy Hagar and Arlen Ness on the Red Rocker Chopper event,” says Dr. Marian Sokol, president of First Candle. “The generosity of their support is overwhelming, and we look forward to providing their fans and supporters with an opportunity to win this amazing chopper, while at the same time helping First Candle with our efforts to help babies survive and thrive."
Tickets are available for a suggested donation of $10 per ticket or three for $25. The winning ticket will be drawn on December 9, 2006 at an open-house party to be held at the Arlen Ness World Headquarters in Dublin, California. Winner need not be present to win.
