EagleRider will celebrate its 20th anniversary in a three-day event this weekend at its headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Make-A-Wish Greater Los Angeles Chapter.
The anniversary celebration kicks off Thursday with a motorcycle sales event, and a tent blowout sale, live music and food on Friday. Saturday starts with a charity poker run and concludes with a red carpet entertainment extravaganza featuring live bands, DJs, a charity casino, motorcycle stunt teams, an EagleRider Girls fashion show, VIP packages, food trucks and retail vendors. Guitarist and record producer Gilby Clarke, formerly of Guns N’ Roses, will also perform.
“This celebration is a culmination of 20 years of blood, sweat and tears so to speak as we pioneered the motorcycle rental and travel industry,” said Chris McIntyre, president and founder of EagleRider. “We want to thank our loyal customers and partners with a night to remember, but at the same time, we are thrilled to support Make-A-Wish and continue our commitment to giving back to the community. We look forward to another 20 years of defining the motorcycle industry and fulfilling dreams around the globe.”
