Gunny’s First Charity Poker Run and Motorcycle show

Bacolod’s Motorcycle community came together for Gunny’s First Charity Poker Run and Motorcycle show to benefit Carl Andrew Tolimao – a member of the Negros Rouser Club who was in a serious motorcycle accident and needed help with his ICU medical bills.  The event was organized by The Negros Rouser Club and the Lady Dragons spearheaded by Joy Diaz.

We volunteered our time to write about Gunny’s first Motorcycle show – A unique and first charity “street-side” motorcycle show here in Bacolod City.   All proceeds from the contest entries were donated.

Many of the motorcycle fanatics in Bacolod took the opportunity to show off their awesome builds.  The motorbikes were parked in front of Gunny’s All American burgers where they were exhibited.

People give their bikes a last coat of polish before the show.

The bikes were judged not only on how good they looked but also if they worked, had proper lights and brakes and safety features.  The judges were Liezel Morales of Monster Cycle Merchandising,  Michael Edward Manzon of Bacolod Drag Racer and former USA airman Ray Stetler. The judges certainly had a tough time since all of these bikes were pretty and eye catching!

Blip motors, Yamaha KTM and Petron were the primary sponsors of the event. They set up tents where they showed their products to the crowd. Petron even offered a free oil change with each purchase of oil.

The events and Fundraising activities were successful with 13,000 pesos from all the activities being raised for the medical bills of Carl Andrew Tolimao.
