WSB Radio and Harley-Davidson of Atlanta are honoring the legacy of former WSB personality Capt. Herb Emory with a toy drive and motorcycle and Jeep ride this weekend.
The annual benefit is held to remember Emory, a traffic reporter who died from a heart attack. The beloved broadcaster suffered the heart attack on April 12, 2014, after helping crash victims in an accident that occurred near his home and directing traffic around the wreck.
The event will be held at Fred’s Bar-B-Q House in Lithia Springs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8. The memorial ride, which includes Jeeps for the first time this year, will begin at 11 a.m. Anyone with a motorcycle or Jeep can participate for $15.
Guests can also bring an unwrapped toy to donate to Toys for Tots. Santa will be on site to hear kids’ Christmas wishes and take photos. There will also be face painting, a NASCAR simulator and a raffle to win a Yeti cooler, tickets to the Richard Petty Driving Experience and tickets to a NASCAR race.
You can also get an up-close look at a helicopter and meet members of the GBI bomb squad. All proceeds from the event will benefit Toys for Tots.
