Bikers Against Street Hunger is a charitable fundraiser presented by the Coalition of Central Illinois Motorcyclists.
 

Who makes up the Coalition of Central Illinois Motorcyclists?

The Coalition of Central Illinois Motorcyclists was formed in 1991 and is compromised of volunteer representatives from several area motorcycle groups, clubs, and organizations who work together to raise awareness and funds to improve the lives of our community's homeless and hungry population.

What is B.A.S.H.?

B.A.S.H. is a fun-filled event including a parade of motorcycles, free bike show (with awards), live music, a 50/50 drawing, and a huge live auction with items too numerous to mention.  In addition, participants will find good food, fun, and friendship.

Who does B.A.S.H. help?

The funds raised at B.A.S.H. are divided between two local organizations that provide assistance to those who are hungry and/or homeless.  The organizations are:

Christian Civic Outreach

The Christian Civic Outreach is located at 515 S.Third Street in Pekin, IL. They offer a variety of services to people in need through emergency assistance.  The objective of this agency is to provide whatever services are within their power to give.

Services offered by the Christian Civic Outreach include:

  • food assistance
  • clothing assistance for adults and children
  • household items such as linens, blankets, house wares, etc

The Christian Civic Outreach assists between 6,000 and 8,000 families a year and distributes approximately 500 food orders each year.

South Side Office of Concern

The South Side Office of Concern is located at 301 N.E. Jefferson Street in Peoria, IL.  The mission of this agency is to assist people in becoming self-sufficient, employed, and living in affordable housing.
