Hundreds of tattooed and leather-clad bikers probably isn’t the first thing you would expect to see at an event to benefit Seattle Children’s Hospital.  But that’s exactly what took place in Renton at Lawless Harley-Davidson‘s grand opening party where motorcycle enthusiasts gathered all weekend for bikes, burgers, bands and charity.

The dealership kicked things off by presenting a check $20,000 to Seattle Children’s Hospital as part of a three-month sales challenge.  After selling 200 motorcycles in 90 days, Lawless Harley-Davidson presented the check to Samantha Mellick, a Children’s Hospital cancer patient, along with KISS 106.1‘s Bender.  “Successes like Children’s Ride wouldn’t be possible without a generous and caring community.  Lawless Harley-Davidson has been a great friend to Seattle Children’s Hospital and Children’s Ride. And in case you haven’t heard, Children’s Ride Weekend raised $190,000 for Seattle Children’s,” Bender announced to the crowd.

As the weekend wore on, biker families were treated to a beer garden, burgers donated from Albert Lee Appliance, delicious dogs grilled up by Seattle’s HOG Chapter, tons of raffles and giveaways, a mechanical bull and, of course, a tattoo artist from Burien Tattoo on hand in case anyone had the urge to get inked.

There were plenty of live acts to keep the people entertained from Friday through Sunday including the Dirtbags, Highway 9 BandMontreux and Queensryche.  Lawless Harley-Davidson will continue to host barbecue events every Saturday and is sure to keep giving back to local charities in the future.
