11th Annual Hogs & Heifers Miracle on 3rd Street Toys for Tots Motorcycle Run – Las Vegas, Nevada

Written by  December 28, 2015

Sunday Dec 13, 2015 was a great day in Las Vegas, Nevada, which was the location for the 11th Annual Hogs & Heifers Miracle on 3rd Street Toys for Tots Motorcycle Run. This great event is held every year to brighten Christmas for children at Sunrise Children’s Hospital, and Hogs & Heifers teamed up with the Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation for the event.

The run is a short ride from Hogs & Heifers Saloon to Sunrise Children’s Hospital. There’s only one stop, but what a stop it is! Las Vegas Fire and Rescue lead the run with a big fire truck. The Children Loved seeing the fire truck pull into the parking lot with Santa and many of his “Biker Elves” right behind. Boxes and boxes of toys were loaded up and taken to Sunrise Children’s Hospital where the kids got to choose their toys, which created big smiles throughout the day!

Dunkin Donuts provided donuts, hot chocolate, and coffee, while Panda Express provided Chinese food for lunch. Thank You! Jen Spraul from “Ace DJ’s” provided the music at Sunrise Children’s Hospital by playing a lot of great upbeat Christmas music for everyone’s entertainment! Thank You Jen!

Pictures with Santa and Mrs. Claus, bounce houses, a customized ornament booth, a face painting station, Paws of Love K-9 Pet Therapy, and exotic birds were also there for the kids. One of the biggest highlights of the event was when the kids got to go on a motorcycle ride around the parking lot. The smiles on the kids’ faces as they mounted the back of the motorcycle was priceless. They absolutely loved their motorcycle ride!

Ryan, Horny Mike, and Rock n Roli from Kounts Customs were at Sunrise Medical Center, and Ryan and Horny Mike customized a Christmas stocking for every child that requested one. Horny Mike airbrushed the child’s name on the stocking and Ryan added some color graphics to each one. A lot of stocking were customized. Thank You Horny Mike and Ryan! And a big extra special THANK YOU to Mr. Danny “The Count” Koker for giving time off to Ryan, Horny Mike, and Rock n Roli so they could attend this event! Roli and his lovely lady Tiffini found out that Sunrise was low on coloring books, so they purchased 150 coloring books and crayons for the kids, which they delivered on Monday. Steve Darnell, owner of “Welder-Up” and star of the TV show “Vegas Rat Rods” was at Hogs & Heifers, along with some of his crew, who help support the run. Thank you all for your support!

After making many children’s Christmas brighter, the “Biker Elves” headed back to Hogs & Heifers where owner Michelle Dell Ramsey provided lunch to all the “Biker Elves.” The Bartenders also fired up their “Megaphones” to keep the new arrivals informed that Hogs & Heifers was still collecting donations for the children. A great time was had by all at Hogs & Heifers! The bartenders entertained the crowd with their “Megaphone” announcements and dancing on the bar. Thank You to Michelle and the entire Hogs & Heifers Crew!
