2015 Patriot Ride Motorcycle Raffle Tickets Are Ready to Sell!
It's that time of year once again and we need your Help!

The 2015 Patriot Ride Motorcycle Raffle Tickets are printed and available for Sale.  We would like to invite members of the Minnesota Patriot Guard to help sell Raffle Tickets for the 2015 Patriot Ride Event.  With the change of venue this year from the Ham Lake Park to Key Air at the Anoka County Airport, we know this year's Patriot Ride will be an Event like no other in Minnesota coming June 20, 2015.  

We are joining forces this year with the Tribute To The Troops in presenting the Patriot Ride sponsored by our great friends from Dennis Kirk.  Instead of competing with two motorcycle raffles we are all focused on one!  We are still two organizations with special purposes but joined together to help this ride become the most successful ever.

As you know a large portion of the funds raised from the Patriot Ride come from the Motorcycle Raffle Ticket sales.   The proceeds from these Raffle Ticket sales (benefiting the MN Patriot Guard, the MN Chapter of the Tribute To The Troops, and the Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund) directly benefit our Veterans, active Military personnel and Family members of our Military.  Please help us make this year the year we ran out of Raffle Tickets.  

We are sharing some information regarding the number of Raffle Tickets printed this year which may be used to help promote the sale of tickets: We have printed a limit of 5000 Raffle Tickets.   We hope this information is useful in encouraging the public to purchase tickets.   Chances of winning the 2015 Harley Davidson Road Glide or $15,000 cash (winners choice) are 1 in 5000.  Those are pretty good odds!

Here are some details regarding the Patriot Ride and Raffle Tickets:

If you are interested in selling Raffle Tickets this year,  please contact Gail Steiner at Dennis Kirk, Inc., by emailing:  Please include your name, address phone number, and the number of Raffle tickets you would like to receive.   Raffle Ticket booklets come in groups of 10 each.    We will send you as many booklets as you would like to sell.

Dennis Kirk will provide a pre-paid UPS Shipping label,  along with an envelope for you to return the sold ticket stubs and the $ collected.   Please plan to return the Ticket stubs and funds collected to Dennis Kirk, Inc., no later than Monday,  June 15.    If people want to write checks they should be made out the MN Patriot Guard (the MN Patriot Guard holds the raffle ticket license but funds are divided between all groups).

This is the 10th Annual Patriot Ride.  This means it has been a decade of memories, and of giving back to those that have given to us.  Please help us reach our goal: 5000 TICKETS SOLD!!
