(Nashville Recording Artist)
Ricky Lee has been performing professionally since the age of 16. Born and
raised in a railroad town, Altoona, Pa. He has written over 300 songs. He
recently recorded his third Nashville CD titled “Ordinary Man”. He has been
performing at music events and fairs across the country, building a life long
fan base. His captivating vocals and high energy country music show, along with
genuine and fun loving spirit, makes him one of country music’s most desired
entertainers. He has shared the stage with some of the best known names in the
music industry. Some of his most treasured shows were at Brooke Army Medical
Center, TX and Fort Carson, CO Army Base entertaining 11,000 soldiers and family
during a 4th of July celebration. A true patriot, Ricky Lee is the founder of
the American Freedom Tour, providing world-class entertainment throughout the
country. In March 2010 he signed a contract with the National VFW to record a
patriotic CD titled “Freedom”. This CD will include 12 songs, ten songs of
which were written by Ricky. This CD was nationally released in June 2010, with
50% of sales going to help our veterans and service members in need.

Driving Classic Rock at its Best! "Silver X-Treme is... a high energy band
who perform 110%... solid gold at every performance." - Nightlife Magazine
The thunderous in-the-pocket rhythm section and dual guitar players - seasoned
beyond their years - give the band fullness and versatility that sets them
apart. Fronted by veteran vocalist Patsy Silver, whose commanding stage presence
and searing vocals brought the band to be nominated NINE years in a row as
"Buffalo's Best Rock Band" at the Buffalo Music Awards.
Each month, 91,000 hungry Western New Yorkers turn to soup
kitchens, food pantries, and other emergency food providers -- 40% are children!
The Food Bank of WNY is a nonprofit
clearinghouse for food solicited from the private sector. The Food Bank
distributes product to approximately 500 charitable programs that feed the needy
in Cattaraugus, Chautauqua, Erie and Niagara Counties. These include food
pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters, day care centers, senior citizen
programs, and residential and day programs for the handicapped, youth and those
undergoing drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
For most Western New York bikers, April is the official start of
the warmer Motorcycle Riding Season! Unfortunately, this year an increasing
number of individuals will be standing in line at soup kitchens and food
pantries instead. The Food Bank receives most of its donations during the
Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, so an April event like "The
Food Bank Motorcycle Run" really helps at a time when donations are traditionally at
a dangerous low point
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED 2014:
Do you like to meet people, have fun AND help out a great cause?
Are you looking for some riding buddies?
The Food Bank Motorcycle Run Committee is looking for new volunteers NOW!
No event planning experience necessary! Reliability and honesty are more
Help is needed passing out flyers at events and to businesses, selling raffle
tickets, getting sponsors & raffle prize donations, attending various events
to promote, recruiting vendors, celebrity guests, bike/car show participants,
day-of-event help, etc. etc. Whatever you can do.
Is this still the
"Cyberspokes Food Bank Run?"
We've had EIGHT successful years "running the show" which raised
$21,397 in cash donations and 11,558 pounds of food, but we've had some family
health issues to deal with, so we've decided that we
(Cyberspokes) could no longer be the main organizers of the event.
The Food Bank of WNY is a charity near and dear to our hearts so we will always
and continue to be one of the main supporters and promoters of this event. We
will continue to help out in any way we can. We will also be offering our advice
and experience to the new organizers while continuing to promote the event via
our web site and events emailer.
We've decided to "pass the torch" to the new organizers.
As you may know, organizing an event like this takes alot of time, dedication,
volunteers and hard work so anything you can do to help out would
be GREATLY APPRECIATED!
