Who: YOU!
What: 7th Annual Biker® Celebration
Where: The Lodge at Deadwood
When: Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015 10 a.m. – 2 p.m
Why: To celebrate women in riding, raise significant funds for local charities and celebrate Motor Maid Gloria Struck’s 90th birthday

Come experience a day of Real Women, Real Stories and Real Fun during the seventh annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Biker Belles Celebration. On Tuesday, Aug. 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’re invited to join a day of festivities at the The Lodge at Deadwood that celebrates women in riding and supports organizations benefitting women’s causes.

Reserve your place at this event, and you’ll be treated to relaxation and motivation. Pamper yourself by visiting the Comfort Zone by Team Diva. This retreat area will allow you to discover and experience new beauty care, fashion wear and riding gear made specifically for women! 

Enjoy a delicious catered lunch while taking in the uplifting songs and stories of biker musician Iron Cowgirl Missy. While you’re there, be sure to check out the phenomenal auction items and place your bids. 

Following the lunch, celebrate Motor Maids matriarch Gloria Struck’s 90th birthday with an entertaining and inspirational presentation from Struck and gain safe riding tips from safety expert and author of “A Crash Course for the Motorcyclist,” Vicki Roberts Sanfelipo. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to service your ride at the Easy Eddie’s Tune-Up Tent and tell the story of your motorcycle at the “Show Your Ride” bike show.

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip created the Biker Belles for two complementary purposes. The first is to raise awareness of the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling, celebrating the woman’s role in shaping the culture, art and history of motorcycling. The second is to use the event to raise funds for worthy local charities that would be of particular interest to these very women. This charity event has been raising monies for worthy charities since its inception in 2009. Your contribution in 2015 will help the Biker Belles continue its mission of charitable giving.

All—men and women, riders and non-riders—are welcome to join this gathering of mentorship and sharing. Participants are asked to make a $45 contribution to join the festivities, 100 percent of which directly benefit two South Dakota charities that benefit women-related causes, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame and Helping with Horsepower. Don’t miss your opportunity to gather and share stories during the 2015 Biker Belles event. Reserve your place now!
