The Manitowoc County Domestic Violence Center and the county’s Court Appointed Special Advocate Program, known as CASA, have been selected as co-recipients of the proceeds from the 31st annual Northeastern Wisconsin Charity Motorcycle Classic.

Sponsors are the Ant Hill Mob Motorcycle Club, which has raised more than $800,000 for charity through various events over the years, and Hoban’s Cycle.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. April 27 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 28 at the Manitowoc County Expo, 4921 Expo Drive. Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for seniors and free for children younger than 12.

There also will be live music, featuring Johnny Wad and Nashville Pipeline, starting at 7 p.m. April 27. Tickets to the dance are $5 in advance and $7 at the door.

Raffle and dance tickets are available from club members, Stock’s Harley Davidson at 2433 Hecker Road, Hoban’s Cycle on Wisconsin 42 in Osman, or at the show.

The custom motorcycle show will feature more than 19 classes of motorcycles, ranging from antique to radical, that will be judged on various criteria.

Project Mini-Chopper bikes built by area high school students also will be on display. The high school project is a collaborative effort spearheaded by the Economic Development Corp. of Manitowoc County and the Chamber of Manitowoc County with supporting sponsorships by area businesses, manufacturers and high schools.

Paul James, director of product communication for Harley-Davidson Corp. and executive editor of HOG Magazine, is slated to be one of the guest judges to evaluate the mini-choppers.

The event will conclude at 4 p.m. Sunday with trophy presentations and the raffle drawing. Raffle prizes are a 2013 Harley-Davidson Classic purchased through Stock’s Harley Davidson, cash prizes, a Harley-Davidson leather jacket donated by Harley-Davidson Corp., Milwaukee, and two $100 Hoban’s Cycle gift certificates.
