ShamRockin' For a Cure On The Way

Bike tour kicks off in North Fulton this weekend; party continues March 9.

ShamRockin' for a Cure, which raises money and awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, roars its way into Alpharetta this weekend with its Bike Tour.

The event culminates with a St. Patrick's Day-themed party on March 9 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta. 

During the bike tour, volunteers will sell $20 raffle tickets for a chance to win a 2011 Triumph Bonneville motorcycle. 

ShamRockin' Bike Tour dates and locations:

  • Alpharetta Great British Car Fayre, downtown Alpahretta; Feb. 23, noon to 6 p.m.

The winner of the motorcycle (or $3,500 cash option) will be announced at the Verizon party on March 9, and the winner does not need to be present to win.

The party is a casual affair to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, with a goal to raise $200,000 in one night.
