The Northwoods Chapter of Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA) will host their second annual fundraiser at the Dugout Bar (N2472 CTH K, Merrill) on Saturday, April 28.
Along with live music from five different bands (It Takes Two, Older Budweiser, Unbroken, Coprophage, F for Effort), will be various raffle and door prizes as well as 50/50 raffles, food and drinks. According to chapter officer “Breacher,” all proceeds will be donated to the chapter and every dollar donated will assist chapter members with carrying out the organization’s mission.
“Bikers Against Child Abuse, Inc. (B.A.C.A.) exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation, and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner, however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.”
Having called Merrill home since its establishment in the fall of 2016, BACA Northwoods Chapter has empowered 125 children to date. Those interested in more information about the April 28 fundraiser are asked to contact Breacher at 715-921-4907 or toll free 1-888-806-5437 ext. 8.
