Great Lakes Engineering announced today that they participated in the 5th annual ‘It’s All About The Kids’ charity event benefitting the Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota, which took place on July 11.
Great Lakes employee Jenifer VanHees is an annual participant in the fundraiser, which featured a Harley Davidson motorcycle run with hundreds of bikers riding to the Children’s Hospital in Saint Paul delivering sick children ice cream and gifts to lift their spirits.
“We feel it’s really important to support such a worthy cause in our community,” commented Bruce Weaver, Owner at Great Lakes Engineering. “We give our employees our full support when they are involved with local charity events. Everybody wins when a community comes together to help each other!”
Great Lakes Engineering used their talents to chemically etch a picture of a Harley Davidson Motorcycle engine, which they framed and donated to the event’s silent auction. Ms. VanHees also donated some of her artwork to the auction. All the money raised goes to the Children’s Hospitals & Clinics of Minnesota.
