2016 National Honor Award Winner
Las Vegas Hog
The Las Vegas HOG representatives worked with local business leaders to secure the Nation of Patriots™ as the beneficiary of a golf outing. They were able to raise over $52,000 for around 25 wounded Veterans and their families. Excellent job!
What is this all about you ask?
One American Flag, 110 Days, 14,500 Miles Honoring our Nation’s Military.
The Nation of Patriots is a 100% volunteer organization that raises money by traveling one American Flag to all 48 lower states with HOG escorts from State to State along the way. They call this the “Patriot Tour”.
This “Patriot Tour” began on Memorial day in Madison, WI and will end Labor Day in Madison, WI. Every motorcycle that rides in the escort is asked to donate at least $5 each leg that they accompany the flag. We will be receiving the flag from Lancaster, CA on Jan 11th – 13th We will then escort the flag to Kingman and pass it off to the AZ chapters there to continue its journey back to Madison.
All the money that SNHOG raises will STAY here in Nevada !
Yes ! That’s right ! 100% – there are NO paid administrators with the organization which makes it so worth every penny you donate !
we have already started our goal to reach $60,000 –
The Annual Golf Tournament a few months ago was a huge success!
So NOW comes the fun part, here are all the activities that Chuck Lennon and his team have organized as the 2017 SW Regional Commander for the N.O.P. –
