The Wheelhouse Monument Run Weekend
Friday, October 4th and Saturday, October 5th, 2019
The Jimmy Burke Activity Center and the San Jacinto Monument, Deer Park, TX
“You could save a life with one simple act”
Founded in 1952, The Wheelhouse is a men’s recovery center located in Deer Park, Texas. It is a bare-bones living environment that offers help to drug or alcohol-addicted men. Most of these men have lost their friends, their family, their money, and their hope. The Wheelhouse is the “last house on the block” because it is often the man’s last chance before he becomes homeless or worse.
In 2007, a group of former attendees of The Wheelhouse and motorcycle enthusiasts came up with the idea of a motorcycle rally to raise funds. This was such a great success it developed into a weekend-long celebration of recovery. The Wheelhouse Monument Run Weekend features a Cake Auction and speaker meeting on Friday night followed by the Motorcycle Run and Wheelhouse Rally on Saturday.
The Rally for The Wheelhouse on Saturday evening features a BBQ dinner, live and silent auctions for unique and high-quality items donated by local business and individuals, and the long-awaited raffle drawing for a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle valued at over $20,000.
Registration for the event and online sales of raffle tickets will be coming soon to this site.
