Charlie’s Harley-Davidson raises money for children’s hospital

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Charlie’s Harley-Davidson will present a check to representatives of Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital (CH-CHH) and their mascot, Cabby the Koala, on Wednesday. Charlie’s participated in a campaign over Christmas 2009 that sold donation tags at $1 each. After purchase, these tags were displayed to show the support for this facility.

Charlie’s raised $498 through this campaign alone.

“This is a vital service for infants and children in this area. We are proud to support this much-needed facility,” said Rick Jansen, general manager of Charlie’s Harley-Davidson. “Community involvement is very important to our dealership. With this campaign, we had an opportunity to care for future riders and their families.”

Charlie’s Harley-Davidson will celebrate its third year in business in 2010.

Located at 408 Fourth St. in Huntington, W.Va., Charlie’s Harley-Davidson provides customers with motorcycle sales, certified H-D service, genuine H-D parts and accessories, MotorClothes apparel and riding gear, a Diner and Rider’s Edge “learn to ride” program.
