Christmas in August. The Road Dogs came together to raise money for its annual Toy Run.

A celebration at the Tap Inn on Saturday, replaced the riders' annual Show and Shine, which was canceled because of COVID-19.

The Road Dogs estimate this event would raise about $4,000 of its annual $60,000 to $75,000 raised for the Salvation Army.

This was held along with birthday party for Tim Craig, who celebrated with 60 pies in the face from other club members.

"It's my 60th birthday so we thought we'd just make a little event," said Tim Craig, Road Dogs member. "Raise money for the kids. Anything I can do to help the kids out, I'll do it."

"The toy run is going to go on this year and we are going to do the best we can," said Greg Cecil, Road Dogs member. "It's going to be tough you know with Christmas time. With all the COVID stuff going on, money's going to be tight. But there's a lot of people out there that want to want to get into it and do it."

"Great," said Tap Inn owner Rick Steinmetz about the Road Dogs Toy run. "Probably the greatest sight man. We probably have 40, 50 people out in front of our place here that watch them come by. It's a really cool thing that the Road Dogs do."

The bands Cutthroat and Fake News also donated their talents to the fundraiser.

The Road Dogs Toy Run is scheduled for Dec. 7.
