Ludington Chrome Divas Ride, Raise Money For Special Group

A motorcycle group revved up their engines and took a ride to help a special group.

The Ludington Chrome Divas love riding around northern Michigan, especially when it’s for a good cause.

Saturday, they helped raise money for Circle Rocking “S” Children’s Farm in Mason County. This special organization has a lot to offer but needs the community’s support to continue.

“Being a small group we want to do as much good as we can do,” says Cindy Stark, president of the Ludington Chrome Divas.

The Ludington Chrome Divas have been helping local organizations for a couple years now. “And sometimes if we only raise a thousand dollars or something, we want to be able to give as much as we can,” says Stark.

And this year they selected the Circle Rocking “S” Children’s Farm that provides touch therapy and recreation for those with disabilities. “With her loss of eye sight it’s hard to find things that she’s able to do so it’s good physically as well as mentally,” says Carol Dean, who sends her daughter to the farm.

The farm in Free Soil is a non profit organization. They help hundreds of people with special needs for free each year. And rely on the community’s support to make it all possible. 

“If it wasn’t for them we couldn’t have the farm. So the money here is actually going to go for the music program and the farm program for the kids to actually continue with the animal care projects, the music therapy programs and performances,” says Nancy Supran, owner of the farm.

More than 70 riders participated in Saturday’s benefit ride, including someone who loves going to the farm. 

“A dream come true,” says Lisa Dean, who goes to the farm. 

“We really appreciate everything that everybody does to help with the farm, I know a lot of the other special needs people do as well, so thank you,” says Carol Dean.

The Chrome Divas traveled up to Frankfort and back and ended at the VFW in Custer with a special dinner. They raised more than $1,000 at Saturday’s event.
