SUMMERSIDE – Several non-profit groups across Prince Edward Island have experienced the benefit of having the Atlanticade motorcycle festival hosted in the province.

Part of the gathering of thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts from across North America is the charity aspect of the festival, which raises money for the Atlanticade Charity Fund. These funds are collected through a variety of activities that take place over the course of the event such as Best-In-Show competition, 50/50 draw, Cruzin-For-A-Cause, along with an auction that occurs at the closing banquet.

As a result, the festival committee was able to provide donations to the Summerside Boys and Girls Club, $7,500, P.E.I. Special Olympics, $1,000, muscular dystrophy, $1,000, Red Rock ‘N Roller Derby, $1,000 and the MADD East Prince Chapter $500.

Atlanticade 2014 is set for June 27 to July 1 again in Summerside.

The 8th annual edition will mark the third straight year the gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts from across North America will converge on Canada’s smallest province. Organizers will be busy for the next few months working on a variety of activities that will take place over the five-day festival.
