The Critter Cruise Dice Run will be held Saturday, June 20, with all proceeds going to the Empire Animal Rescue Society (EARS), a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing animals from abusive, dangerous or neglectful situations.
EARS volunteer foster parents take these mistreated animals into their loving homes and nurse them back to health with the assistance of veterinarians before finding them their next forever homes. EARS is 100 percent volunteer-run and helps hundreds of cats, dogs and other animals each year.
For those who aren’t familiar with “dice runs,” participants drive their motorcycles or cars on a designated route, making stops along the way. At each stop, die are rolled and scores are recorded. At the end of the run, those with both the highest and lowest scores are considered the winners and receive a prize.
The Critter Cruise Dice Run begins and ends at the Little Valley American Legion, Post 531, at 5099 Route 353. The cruise heads to Bob’s Bar, Gowanda Harley, the Ellicottville Legion, The Clinton Salamanca, and then back to the Little Valley Legion, where lunch will be served.
Guests can also take part in the Chinese and silent auctions and a 50/50 raffle, all to benefit EARS. Funds raised will go toward the care and treatment of rescued animals, which costs the organization more than $5,000 per month.
Registration for the Critter Cruise Dice Run is from 9-11 a.m. at the Little Valley American Legion. Cost is $15, and the cruise is open to all motorcycles and cars. Why not spend a few hours helping a great organization help so many wonderful animals and have a great time in the process? It’s a win-win!
