ST. GEORGE — A check for $1,000 was presented to Memory Matters Utah/Nevada by the Southern Utah Harley Owners Group with proceeds from the group’s inaugural “Memory Ride.”
S.U.H.O.G. members Larry Hayes, Gladys Commes and Cheri Hayes presented the check Wednesday to LuAnn Lundquist, founder and executive director of Memory Matters.
The proceeds from the Memory Ride will go to fund local Memory Matters’ programs, including information and referral services, support groups, care consultations, memory testing consultations, outreach and education events, early stage memory loss classes, memory activity classes and the “Good Morning Sunshine” wellness calling program.
“The Memory Ride was a great first-time event,” Hayes said in a news release. “We are excited to do it again next year and make it even bigger.”
S.U.H.O.G is a nonprofit organization through which members participate in regular weekend events that raise both funds and awareness for local charities.
