Sturgis Buffalo Chip passes milestone in charitable donations
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - With attendance at the 80th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally capturing national attention, this year’s rally helped the Sturgis Buffalo Chip reach a new milestone.
Raising more than $201,000 this year, the Buffalo Chip reached $1 million in total charitable donations, thanks to rally-goers.
During its 2020 Music and Motorcycle Festival, the money raised is going to children in need, veterans, and the local community.
The President and CEO of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip said this was probably the best rally they’ve ever had.
“People are doing it out of their own goodness, their own heart, their own pocketbook, so you’ve got money there that’s going to the actual benefit of the children and you can see the benefit that you’re providing, it’s not going into some fund some place and paying out a bunch of salaries, and rent, and mortgage payments, and that sort of thing, it’s going right to the kids, right to the people,” said Rod Woodruff, president and CEO of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Woodruff said it was a pleasure presenting the checks, and he looks forward to giving even bigger checks next year.
