LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Christian Village of Sayre hosted its first-ever Ride to Remember Car and Bike Show to raise funds for its memory-care residents.
The event allowed residents to take a motorcycle ride. It also included food, live music, a car show, and a charity ride that made stops through Lexington.
Sayre CEO Karen Venis spoke about the thinking that led to the biker theme of Ride to Remember.
“You know, we were trying to come up with an idea to have an outdoor fundraiser. And our team, we just throw a lot of ideas on the wall. So we have this Moonshot lens, to try something different. Let’s attract a new crowd. Many of our residents have never been able to cycle before. “
