Uncle Joe Benson at Pomona HOG Toy Run, 12/1/02.

OnAir Button

December 1, 2002: Unc was the Grand Marshall and guest MC for the Pomona HOG Toy Run in Ontario, sponsored by the Pomona Valley Harley Owners Group. A beautiful, glorious sunny day with 1,700 to 1,800 bikes on display, and thousands of unwrapped toys gathered for Santa Claus Inc. (to help disadvantaged kids). There were bike games, raffles, food and a beer garden, and music — and Joe even helped judge the motorcycle show!
