Boswell's Toy Parade is Tomorrow--Benefits MNPD Christmas Basket Program
November 1, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Boswell’s 19th Annual Toy Parade, a significant fundraising event for the Metropolitan Police Department’s Christmas Basket Program benefiting needy Nashvillians, is set for this Saturday (November 2nd), and motorcycle enthusiasts from across Middle Tennessee are invited to take part.
Motorcycle riders can begin lining up in Centennial Park at 10 a.m. Saturday for the 1 p.m. fun ride to Boswell’s Fesslers Lane store, where a large outdoor cookout and live music will await. The parade will head down West End to Broadway, turn north on 2nd Avenue North, go across the Cumberland River and circle LP Field before concluding on Fesslers Lane.
“Middle Tennessee is loaded with great and caring motorcycle riders who come together year after year to support this great cause,” said Bubba Boswell, President of Boswell’s Harley-Davidson. “We are proud that this event has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars over the past 18 years, making it a primary funding element of the Christmas Basket Program.”
Participating riders are asked to bring a new toy and/or make a cash donation. The money and toys will be used to support the police department’s annual Christmas Basket Program, now in its 52nd year, through which police officers deliver food and toys to needy Nashvillians on Christmas Eve morning. Hundreds of men, women and children comprising more than 200 underprivileged families will receive surprise gifts of food and toys this year.
All riders and brands of motorcycles are welcome to take part in the Toy Parade.
