Red Hawk Casino Hosts Make-A-Wish Benfit

PRESS RELEASE

July 09, 2013

Red Hawk Casino will be helping grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions in our community by hosting the 11th Annual Walt Gray Ride, Sunday August 18, benefitting Make-A-Wish Northeastern California and Northern Nevada.

The event begins at 8 a.m. with a light breakfast at Sacramento State University Alumni Center- Parking Lot 8, 6000 J Street. The ride will promptly begin at 10 a.m. and will end at Red Hawk Casino in Placerville, where participants will enjoy lunch, vendors, raffles, and a live concert performance by the blues rock group The Laurie Morvan Band. All proceeds will benefit Make-A-Wish, granting wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

Walt Gray began the Walt Gray Ride a decade ago, marrying his love of motorcycles and his passion for local children's charities. He is currently the popular morning show host on The Eagle 96.9, and has also worked at KCRA-TV in Sacramento, where he became one of Northern California's most notable sports anchors over a career spanning 25 years. The Walt Gray Ride has become one of the most popular motorcycle based charities in California. Last year, the ride featured more than 2,000 riders.

Celebrating 30 years of granting wishes, Make-A-Wish Northeastern California & Northern Nevada grants wishes to children like eight-year-old Peyton, who recently faced the challenge of a malignant tumor in his left eye. When approached by Make-A-Wish, he quickly chose to go to Disney World and meet characters from his favorite movie, Cars.

Peyton's Mom Kelly Krasner said the wish couldn't have come at a better time. "It gave us all something to look forward to and now we have the precious memories we created together as a family." Kelly says Peyton
has always had a fascination with moving vehicles, cars, trucks, but especially motorcycles, noting both his grandfather and father owned a motorcycle shop.

To make his love for moving vehicles, particularly motorcycles, a little more special, Peyton has raised money to donate to Make-A-Wish, and has been granted the title of being the official 2013 Ambassador for the Walt Gray Ride. Participants will get a chance to meet Ambassador Peyton at the event.

A pre-ride party will be held Saturday, August 17 from noon to 3 p.m. at Harley Davidson of Sacramento, located at 1000 Arden Way in Sacramento, Calif.
