Bikers rally together for a good cause
GONZALES - The Nubian Kruzers United held their seventh annual motorcycle rally at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center Saturday.
Part of the proceeds from the money raised this weekend will go to the Battered Women's Shelter of Baton Rouge. Over the past seven years, the group has given more than $30,000 to battered women's shelters.
"We've been blessed to ride, and yeah we're an African American group, but on the same token we support everybody," said Eric Jefferson, the vice president for the Baton Rouge chapter of the Nubian Kruzers United.
Games, a swimsuit contest and a fashion show were all a part of Saturday's events.
The gates open at 10 a.m. Sunday. The cost to get in is $10 and kids under 12 can get in for free.
