10th Annual B.A.C.A. Ride in Bike Show – Kansas City, Missouri

Written by  June 1, 2013

March 4, 2013, Bikers Against Child Abuse® (B.A.C.A.) Kansas City, Missouri Chapter put on their 10th Annual Ride-in Bike Show at Worth Harley-Davidson. Of course anyone on two wheels knows a B.A.C.A. member when they see one, and the dedication they are committed to in promoting the safety of children and the prevention of child abuse. These are definitely hard-core cats serious when it comes to their cause.

The day of the event the weather was chilly and the sky was overcast with a high chance of showers, which diminished the turn-out but because it was a rain or shine event, the show went on. Of course the mighty warriors for children we know as the B.A.C.A. were in abundance. Worth Harley-Davidson provided their event center for the bands Raildog and Rivergard to rock the crowd throughout the event. Worth was also so gracious to provide the beautiful “Worth Girls” to dispense adult beverages for everyone present (if old enough, of course).

This event had several venders showing their support setting up booths and weathering the dismal conditions. Mid-America Bully Breed Rescue was represented showing their cause for all breeds of dogs considered bullies to raise awareness. Also included were the lovely ladies manning the “Passion Parties with Ashley” booth displaying all types of interesting (if you know what I mean) inventory. And of course Valerie Smith displayed products of IT WORKS! There was something for everyone.

Kansas City’s B.A.C.A. members put on another great event proving they will do whatever it takes for the safety of children everywhere. B.A.C.A.’s mission statement says it all:

“Bikers Against Child Abuse exists with the intent to create a safer environment for abused children. We exist as a body of Bikers to empower children to not feel afraid of the world in which they live. We stand ready to lend support to our wounded friends by involving them with an established, united organization. We work in conjunction with local and state officials who are already in place to protect children. We desire to send a clear message to all involved with the abused child that this child is part of our organization, and that we are prepared to lend our physical and emotional support to them by affiliation and our physical presence. We stand at the ready to shield these children from further abuse. We do not condone the use of violence or physical force in any manner; however, if circumstances arise such that we are the only obstacle preventing a child from further abuse, we stand ready to be that obstacle.”
