A Plea for Help

To the Lakeside/Guadalajara Biker Community, we have a biker down and she needs your help.

Los Güeros First Annual Pay It Forward Event

As our VP Dave likes to say, Bikers need a cause.  Your executive committee has decided we’re going to hold a fund raising event annually.  The theme/name of the event is Pay It Forward.  There comes a time in all of our lives where we need help.  Pay It Forward helps to put a little something away in the Karma bank.

DebDeb the secretary and treasurer of the Los Güeros motorcycle club has been told that she will have to lose her lower leg by amputation.  Deb is suffering from scleroderma, or systemic sclerosis, is a chronic connective tissue disease generally classified as one of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases.  Her medical bills up to this time trying to keep her leg has left their finances to low to be able to have this procedure done.  Mike and Deb need our help.

Fundraiser, 26th of April

The club’s executive is organizing a fund-raising dinner, concert and auction to be held at the Hotel Villa Montecarlo in Chapala on the 26th of April.  The event is from 6:00 pm to whenever we close.  We’re looking for club members to go out and seek donations from local businesses, artists,  travel agencies, service providers, whomever you can think of, to be auctioned off at the event.
