The committee is wrapping up final expenses of the 2019 American Tribute Ride and should have a meeting soon to disburse the funds. The committee is very appreciative of the 200 participants on 129 bikes and 4 four-wheelers.
Every year the American Tribute Ride shares the proceeds with some great entities that support and help emergency services personnel families and veterans. Those this year will be: Tunnel of Towers Foundation, Wisconsin State Firefighters Memorial, Wisconsin Summer Camp for Burned Youth Survivors, Old Glory Honor Flights, Wisconsin Veterans Housing and Recovery Program, and Wisconsin Concerns of Police Survivors
We are especially grateful to the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin-Charitable Foundation’s support and participation. We are honored that we can support the Summer Camp for Burn Injured Youth with some of the money we raised.
You will find attached a copy of the list of major sponsors/donors to this year’s event. Again without these individuals and companies willing to give and support we would have very little to share.
We are anticipating setting the 2020 American Tribute Ride route in the area of Dodge/Jefferson/Waukesha counties. Any department that would be interested in being the beginning of the ride host, lunch stop or rest stop or end of the day ceremony/stop contact one of our committee members.
Chairman Ron Naab is still seeking a volunteer to be the treasurer for the American Tribute Ride. The most intense time to be a part of the operation is during the pre-registration, day of the ride and the couple of weeks following the ride. For more information how you may support or be involved you can contact Ron Naab at firstname.lastname@example.org, 262/629-9749, or private message him on Facebook.
