Full Throttle schedules Honor Flight fundraiser

June 5, 2012
The Mining Journal

MARQUETTE - Upper Peninsula Honor Flight will benefit from a Bike Night at 6 p.m. Thursday at Full Throttle Bar and Grill in Little Lake.

The Honor Flight's goal is to bring every World War II veteran from the Upper Peninsula to Washington, D.C., to visit the memorial in their honor along with other national landmarks.

Through donations and fundraisers, the WWII veterans travel to Washington free of charge.

The Full Throttle fundraiser includes a silent auction for a Green Bay Packers football signed by the entire 2011 team.

Bidding for the football has begun on the Full Throttle's Facebook page and will conclude at about 9 p.m. Thursday, at the conclusion of the fundraising event.

"You don't have to have a motorcycle to have a great time on bike night," said Sally Searle, who owns the bar with her husband Scott. "You can come out and participate whether you ride or not. It's a social night you feel good about."

The majority of funds are raised by basket raffles and 50/50 drawings. The basket raffles can be for anything from rounds of golf to cleaning supplies to cupcakes, Searle said.

Patrons at bike night can order off the full restaurant menu, with the special being broasted pork chops, she added.

The Full Throttle sponsors a Bike Night every Thursday during the summer, with a different charity receiving the funds raised each week.
