On Sunday, July 14, 2019, Trantolo & Trantolo and TSI Harley-Davidson present the 5th Annual MDA Benefit Ride & Concert! Connecticut’s largest one-day charity motorcycle ride returns to Sun Valley Beach Resort in Stafford Springs. We’re so excited to announce that rock icon Bret Michaels and The American Band, Grand Funk Railroad, will headline the show.
The Motorcycle Ride
Join the spirited motorcycle ride to Stafford Springs from one of three motorcycle dealerships: TSI Harley-Davidson in Ellington, Yankee Harley-Davidson in Bristol and Sheldon’s Harley-Davidson in Auburn, MA. We’ll travel the scenic roads of Connecticut to one of the most exciting outdoor events of the summer! About one mile from Sun Valley Beach Resort, all three groups will merge and be escorted by police riders to the venue.
At the Venue
Ticketholders who are not participating in the motorcycle ride* can go directly to Sun Valley Beach Resort, where the gates will open at 12pm. There will be food trucks and other vendors on-site selling food and drinks throughout the day. Before the entertainment starts, admire the amazing motorcycles on display and enter to win awesome raffle prizes, including gift cards, motorcycle clothing and accessories. One lucky winner will become the proud owner of our grand prize – a brand new Harley-Davidson motorcycle!**
The Rock Concert
Grand Funk Railroad, The American Band, will take the stage at 2pm, followed by Bret Michaels at 3:30pm***, playing all your favorite Poison and Bret Michaels Band favorites.
You asked, we listened! Reserved seating will be available under a white tent top. Stay out of the hot sunshine while enjoying the concert on the hill. These tickets are only available for purchase at TSI Harley-Davidson, Yankee Harley-Davidson and Sheldon’s Harley-Davidson.
