Mar 12th, 2010 | By Hot News Reporter | Category: Insurance Today

(BUSINESS WIRE) – GEICO Powersports has partnered with several local sponsors to raise money for the upcoming Bikers for Tykes and Troops Rally and Concerts to benefit the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) and the USO of Hampton Roads.

Tonight, join GEICO and 92.9 The Wave and head to Red Robin in Chesapeake, Va., in honor of the many families in Hampton Roads whose children are assisted by CHKD. While enjoying your dinner, participate in give-a-ways, buy raffle tickets and get a chance to meet the GEICO Gecko. And if you can’t make it to the Red Robin in Chesapeake, visit any other Red Robin in the Hampton Roads region and 15 percent of the proceeds will be donated to CHKD.

“Here at GEICO, making a positive contribution to our community is extremely important to us,” said, Joe Thomas, regional vice president of GEICO’s Virginia Beach office. “When we have the opportunity to assist some the local families in the Hampton Roads’ region, we take advantage of it. We know that this community will not let us down.”

Although the charity rally and concert is not officially until April 9-11, the Hampton Roads region is getting a head start by raising money for CHKD and the USO this weekend. Last year, the Bikers for Tykes and Troops Rally and Concert raised $50,000 for both CHKD and USO of Hampton Roads. For more information, feel free to visit:
