Doin’ it for the kids

After learning that the annual Kause for Kids fundraiser was cancelled after seven successful years, Jen Gaukroger at Paddington’s decided last week to revive the event as Bikes for Tykes November 7.
“There’s not a lot going on in Grand Bend in November,” Gaukroger says, “and when you get 600-700 people coming in and supporting our town, I’d hate to lose that crowd.”
Like Kause for Kids, motorcycle riders will tour the town starting at 11 a.m. in support of the Huron-Perth Children’s Aid Society. Gift donations will go as Christmas gifts to children who are wards of the state.
Tickets for the event, which includes a barbecue and party at Paddington’s, are $20; $135 gets you two tickets and a hotel room for the night. Tickets are available at the pub or by credit card at 519-238-5788 Thursday through Saturday.
