Seattle Storms Don’t Stop Dierks
Guess it’s no surprise that it poured on Dierks Bentley’s fund-raiser bike ride Saturday (Sept. 18) in Seattle.
But it might be a surprise that more than 5,000 folks showed up for the event.
And the final count is in—more than $50,000 was raised for the Seattle Children’s Hospital.
“Rainy days aren’t typically when most people are itching to get out the motorcycle for a leisurely afternoon ride,” Dierks said in a press release.
“But we’ve come to learn over the last few years of putting these rides on that motorcycle riders may look big and bad, but they have a heart of gold, and it would take a lot more than a little rain to deter them. I want to thank all the riders and fans that came out and got soaked with us. We had a blast!”
Dierks’ next Miles & Music for Kids event happens Oct. 17 in Nashville.
