Washington, DC — Calling all bikers. Here is your chance to win a very special Harley-Davidson — and support a great law enforcement cause in the process.
The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) is now raffling a 2009 Harley-Davidson FLHTCU Peace Officers Special Edition motorcycle, with proceeds going toward efforts to build the first-ever National Law Enforcement Museum in Washington, DC. Donated by Harley-Davidson, this beautiful bike has an MSRP of $21,387.
Raffle tickets are $25, and only 4,000 are being sold. Tickets can be purchased in one of two ways: by calling toll-free, 1-877-544-BIKE (2453), or in person at the NLEOMF Visitors Center & Store, 400 7th Street, NW, Washington, DC, where the motorcycle is currently on display. The raffle drawing will take place there at 5 pm (EDT) on Friday, May 15, which is Peace Officers Memorial Day during National Police Week. The winner need not be present to win.
Authorized by Congress in the year 2000, the National Law Enforcement Museum (www.LawEnforcementMuseum.org) will be an architecturally inspiring, 55,000 square foot, mostly underground museum located adjacent to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. The Museum will tell the story of American law enforcement through high-tech, interactive exhibitions, historical artifacts, an extensive media collection and comprehensive educational programming. Groundbreaking is scheduled for the fall of 2010, with a projected opening in mid-2013.
The privately funded Museum has launched an $80 million capital campaign, with more than $37 million raised to date. Former Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton serve as co-chairs of the Museum's National Honorary Campaign Committee.
In 2007, Harley-Davidson announced it was donating three brand new motorcycles to the Memorial Fund in support of the Museum's "Matter of Honor" campaign. The previous two raffles raised approximately $50,000 for the Museum.
The toll-free telephone number for purchasing tickets — 1-877-544-BIKE (2453) — is answered between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm (EDT), Monday through Friday.
