There's a new service organization in town and they are already setting a big goal for themselves.
Dreams for Kids is a Perham based group of friends and fellow bikers that are seeking to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation of Minnesota.
The group hopes to make a difference in the lives of area children who are suffering from disease and illness. Dreams for Kids hopes to raise at least $10,000 this year, enabling two children in the state to have their wishes granted.
To achieve this goal, Dreams for kids has planned several fundraising events for the year.
The group will be raffling off a Harley Davidson Road King on July 22.
Tickets are $20.
For the long range, the group's goal is to raise $40,000 annually. which would finance eight wishes per year.
In addition to the raffle, the organization will be hosting a Bike Run on July 22, which it hopes to see become an annual event. The event will begin at 10:30 at the Cactus Bar and Grill in Perham. The ride will begin at 1 p.m. Pre-registration will last through July 8 and will cost $15 per participant. After July 8, participants can register for $20 per person. The event includes a bike ride, a meal, entertainment, and a chance to win prizes.
The organization is also accepting donations to help reach their goal.
