DescriptionAugust 25, 2007 - - , - Kellogg , Iowa , , USA ABATE District 9 Charity Rodeo, bike show, auction and dance Sponsored by ABATE of Iowa District 9 and its supporting businesses District 9's Charity Rodeo, Auction and Dance will be held on Saturday, August 25th in Holmdahl Park, Kellogg, Iowa starting about noon and running throughout the day. There will be another great motorcycle rodeo, a bike show, our fund raising auction and a dance uptown following the days events. The funds raised will help us to help the Teen Challenge of the Midlands, a faith-based drug and alcohol dependency program for young adults. This isn't a week long, celebrity-type of rehab program set up like a 4 star hotel. This is a 13 month program of diligent, hard work and effort on the part of all those involved, staff included. They aren't set up like a resort, by any means. So much of what they have is used, castaway stuff that they've salvaged to use in treating these young people. They aren't heavily funded like the government services are and if they simply don't have the funds for something, then they do without. And this includes food! But what this program does seems to work. From my research on the internet, Teen Challenge has one of the highest success rates of treatment facilities around the Country, with one of the lowest records of relapse. It took most of the young people years to get to the point they're at when they arrive at this treatment facility, and the staff seem to know that it's going to take a long time to undo all that's been done up to that point. A week or two of celebrity treatment just isn't going to cut it. ABATE District 9 considered a number of charities to try and help with this years rodeo and auction. Lots of discussion ensued over the various programs and options that were available, but ultimately, the district felt that this program offered a different and unique opportunity at giving young adults a better chance at life, family and being valued members of the world. It was also mentioned that the funds we raise will go directly to benefit the young adults involved, rather than being divided up into administrative coffers and such, where only a portion a donation is actually used for the direct benefit of those we choose to help. We invite you to come out to our ABATE Dist 9 Rodeo, bike show, auction and dance to help benefit Teen Challenge of the Midlands on August 25th, beginning at noon, and help us give these young people a fighting chance. If possible, we also ask that if anyone would care to donate an auction item, anything at all, to please bring it along. It doesn't need to be biker related, just because this is a biker event. We need and can use anything anyone else does...can openers, TV sets, radios, waxes and polishes, tents, tools, garden supplies, you name it, we can and will use it. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call Hank at 641-521-6564 and I'll do my best to answer any questions you may have. For more information call 641-521-6564, email, or go to
