MAV Bike Show and Blues Festival – August 16th, 2008

MAV Bikes & Blues Festival 2008

Diana and I have been fortunate enough to become officers within the MAV organization earlier this year. The Motorcycle Accident Victims Foundation is a grassroots local charity formed by members of First State HOG back in 1994. MAV is an approved 501(c)3 charitable organization and is listed with the United Way.

MAV offers financial assistance to injured motorcyclists in the Delaware and Maryland area. I think we cover parts of Pennsylvania and New Jersey also.  The motorcyclist has to have a motorcycle endorsement, the proper insurance and be sober at the time of the accident in order for MAV to consider their case.

We are a 100% volunteer organization under the AMA. The Bike Show & Blues Festival is our primary fund raiser to raise the money which is used help bikers who have had an accident.

Diana and I helped with the event most of the day yesterday. It was alot of work setting up the tents, directing traffic, selling merchandise, taking pictures and then breaking down the tents and putting everything away… but it is very rewarding.

I would like to personally thank the 5 volunteers from my HOG chapter who came to help. Thank you Bob, Bob, Alice, Bek and Earnie!

Now here is what you really want, pictures!
