LET IT RIDE

template_finaleDave Bolland presented a custom-built Blackhawks Orange County Chopper to Josh Holleb of Highland Park, IL.

The Blackhawks, in conjunction with the Special Kids Network and the Orange County Choppers Foundation, raffled off the bike throughout the 2010-11 regular-season, with over 1,000 tickets purchased. Holleb won the drawing live on the WGN-TV Morning News in April.  Proceeds from the raffle benefitted the Chicago Blackhawk Charities, the Orange County Choppers Foundation and the Special Kids Network.

The Blackhawks logo is displayed on the gas tank, which is autographed by players and coaches of the Stanley Cup Championship team.   The bike’s rims emulate hockey sticks and pucks and the handlebars depict the taped butt-end of a hockey stick. Sponsored by Aaron Equipment Company, Inc, the bike was on display at several Blackhawks home games at the United Center and at various locations around Chicago throughout the season.

Chicago Blackhawk Charities supports programs and institutions throughout Illinois that work toward creating a better tomorrow for the youth of today. An independent non-profit organization, the Special Kids Network was created to provide funding for programs that help children and young adults with special needs. The philanthropic arm of Orange County Choppers, the OCC Foundation designs tribute bikes and undertakes charity builds in support of families in need, American men and women in the armed services, and others.
