WIC Coats for Kids Fundraising Event:

The 15th Annual WIC Coats for Kids Motorcycle Run was held on Saturday, July 23, 2022.  Riders gathered at the Nanty Glo Fire Hall for the event and enjoyed beautiful weather for their bike ride.  After the run, all involved enjoyed a spaghetti dinner, basket raffle, door prizes, best bike contest, kids bicycle decorating contest and great music by Ruff Tymes Band! This successful event will help keep a lot of children in need, warm this winter.  All proceeds will be used to shop with families for new coats, hats, gloves, and boots.
