Yuengling and Champion Brands just wrapped up a 2 month Lager promotion in Kangaroo convenience stores in the Jacksonville, FL area. At the end of the Yuengling promotion, Adamec Harley Davidson organized a charity motorcycle ride called "Ride for Smiles." The ride was sponsored by Adamec, Kangaroo, and Yuengling. The ride helped raise money for Facing Futures, a charity that provides surgery's for children with severe facial deformity's caused during birth or from other traumatic reasons.

Ride for Smiles was a great success, with over 400 participants joining the police escorted ride around the Jacksonville area. 2 lucky riders went home with custom painted Yuengling helmets that were raffled off as part of the fundraising efforts. Other raffle prizes included gift certificates to Adamec Harley Davidson, and free Harley rentals from Adamec. Applebees provided the food for the event, and riders enjoyed Yuengling responsibly along with their meal. When all was said and done, over $35,000 was raised for the charity! Thank you to everyone who participated in this event.
