Benefit Motorcycle Ride for Niamh McGrane

On May 17 there will be a benefit ride for Niamh “Nia” McGrane, a Washington Island baby girl born with a cleft lip and palate. She’s already had one surgery on her lip, and will have her second surgery in the late fall at the Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee.

The ride begins on Route 43 Harley-Davidson, 3736 South Taylor Drive in Sheboygan, and goes through Sheboygan County with stops at Black Dog Bistro and Smiling Moose. The ride concludes at Superior Bar and Grill, where food and drink will be available for purchase along with raffles. The approximate distance is 85 miles. Registration begins at Route 43 at 10 am. The cost is $15 per bike and $5 per passenger.

All event proceeds will be used to offset current and future medical bills. Send donations to: Baylake Bank, c/o Niamh McGrane, 1131 Main Road, Washington Island, WI 54246. For more information call Bill Swoboda, 920.254.3275, or Curt Schaefer, 920.946.1123.
