Original post from 3/21/2015:
The Moonshine Cowboys Riding Club is a group of people bonded together with their love for motorcycles and the open road.  The group, formed in 2012 and started their first fundraising events in 2013 to support causes for non profit groups.​ They stay together because of their commitment to various causes and helping others in need. They have a full charter and are accepting new members.

The first annual Moonshine Cowboys Ride for a Cause in 2013 raised $3,500 (net) for breast cancer research. The second year (2014) raised $6,000 (net). 2015 events and activities include a community appreciation day in May, a June blood drive, the third Ride for a Cause in August, and adopting families in December. Francine's Friends will be one of the local charities to benefit from the 2015 "Ride for a Cause", to be held on June 20, 2015.

At the present time, the Moonshine Cowboys are selling “Bikers Against Breast Cancer” calendars and have raised $1,000 so far to be given to Francine’s Friends. “The reason for choosing Francine’s Friends is to help have a direct impact on helping others with the early detection of breast cancer,” said Bill Griese, president of the group. “The Moonshine Cowboys Riding Club is committed to helping those that are in need and will use the power of their members to make a difference in our communities.”
