“I have been lucky to have had the chance to make friends with a ton of people from different walks of life throughout my career,” says John Oakes, managing partner of Four Corners Motorcycle Rally. “With what the world is dealing with this year, I felt it to be critically important to do what I can to do something positive in the middle of all the craziness. After reaching out to friends in the motorcycle and music industries, I am excited about what we are making happen together!
One lucky person and a guest will get their choice of a VIP Side of Stage experience at a future concert with our friends Slipknot, Disturbed, Godsmack, or Five Finger Death Punch and receive a custom 2020 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special all while raising money for three great causes.”
