The Coalition of Central Illinois Motorcyclists was formed in 1991, when Peoria Police Sergeant David Horner, sought the help of several area motorcycle clubs and organizations for the common goal of assisting Marge Singleton (owner of Sadie’s Cafe) in feeding the area’s hungry. The fundraiser, Cycles for Sadie’s, aided in keeping Sadie’s Cafe open and the area’s hungry fed. After the passing of Marge Singleton and Sgt. Horner (both died in 1993), the Coalition felt there was a strong need to continue the effort to help those in our community. That desire to help resulted in the creation of Bikers Against Street Hunger (B.A.S.H.). For the last several years, the monies raised have been divided between the South Side Office of Concern in Peoria and the Christian Civic Outreach in Tazewell county. Bikers Against Street Hunger is the only fundraiser in the Peoria area in which several motorcycle clubs and organizations come together as a team to help others in their time of need. Working together, the members of these organizations form the Coalition of Central Illinois Motorcyclists.
Bikers Against Street Hunger is a fun event consisting of a motorcycle parade, free bike show (with awards), music, entertainment, a 50/50 drawing, an auction, food, and fun. A $5.00 cash donation is all that is required to participate in a day filled with fun, good food, refreshments, friends and motorcycles.
