Bentley expands ride to Seattle
Friday, March 19, 2010
– Dierks Bentley will continue his nationwide Miles & Music for Kids" celebrity motorcycle ride and concert series with a stop in Seattle on Sat., Sept.18. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Seattle Children's Hospital.
The 45-minute ride will depart Destination Harley-Davidson of Tacoma and travel to the Puyallup Fair. Tickets for the family-friendly event go on sale March 27 at www.thefair.com. Prices start at $25, with special VIP packages also available.
"With our events in Nashville and Phoenix down, we are already well into planning Dallas and now Seattle too," says Bentley. "The Pulyallup Fair said they'd like to be partners with us for this one, so we jumped at the chance. The more folks we can get involved, the more money we can raise."
Last year, Bentley joined forces with Nationwide Insurance, CMT One Country and the Children's Miracle Network to expand the event to 6 cities across the country in 2009 and 2010, with all proceeds benefiting Children's Miracle Network hospitals in those areas. Since it began in 2006, Miles & Music for Kids has raised over $1 million
