The Thundering Saints have donated $10,000 to Hospice of the Red River Valley, generated from proceeds of the fifth annual Debbie Gabel Memorial Ride held in Valley City on July 27. The donation will be used to provide compassionate end-of-life care to those in Valley City and surrounding communities.

This year’s ride attracted approximately 120 registered motorcycles from the surrounding states. Following the ride, participants enjoyed a dinner at the VFW Club, followed by a silent auction and a street dance featuring “The Michael D. Band.” The raffle drawing was held at midnight; grand prize was a 2013 Polaris Ranger.

Next year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, July 26, 2014.
