The Marine-backed charity Toys for Tots is hosting a motorcycle rodeo this Saturday in Godfrey.  Starting at 1:00, bikers, families and friends will gather at the Alton / Wood River Sportsmen's Club to raise money for the organization.  Local organizer Glenn Heimer says there will be live music, food, and fun for the whole family.

He says Toys for Tots was started in 1947 by a retired Marine, and his group has carried on the tradition.

Heimer comments

Tickets are $10 per person or $15 per couple for those 16 years old and above.  Anyone 15 or younger gets in free.  There is still vendor space available.  For more information, contact Heimer at 618-433-1281.
