Participants will Support the Kids & Chrome Foundation through BIC 4 GOOD
SHELTON, CT – August 4, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – BIC® Flex4® razors is taking the BIC 4 GOOD program to Sturgis, South Dakota, on August 4, 2011 through August 13, 2011 to challenge motorcycle enthusiasts to “Get Real. Get BIC.” at the world’s best known motorcycle rally.
To continue their 2011 BIC 4 GOOD fundraising efforts, BIC will ask the nearly 500,000 estimated attendees at the 71st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to shave their heads, in support of Kids & Chrome – a charity whose mission is to mobilize the generosity of the motorcycle community, enrich the lives of children and preserve the history of motorcycling.
BIC first partnered with the men of Orange Country Choppers (OCC) in February 2011 to create a custom made motorcycle inspired by the BIC® Flex4® men’s razor. The partnership and production were documented in an episode of “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior,” which aired on February 7, 2011 on the Discovery Channel. During the episode, the men of OCC bared their hearts and shaved their heads, mustaches and beards for BIC 4 GOOD to benefit the OCC Foundation. BIC will be loaning the chopper, which incorporates the razor’s four flexible blades, its comfortable grip, and even the BIC Boy, to the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum and Hall of Fame indefinitely for all to see.
The generosity and enthusiasm exhibited by the tough and philanthropic OCC crew inspired BIC to bring the BIC 4 GOOD program to Sturgis, along with the chopper, in an effort to raise money for yet another great cause, Kids & Chrome. Paul Teutul Sr. will even be on hand at BIC’s pop-up barbershop at the Buffalo Chip Campground on August 10, 2011 to encourage shaves for charity and to show off the custom chopper inspired by the BIC® Flex4® razor.
Want to “Get Real. Get BIC.”? From August 4 through August 13, 2011, visit the BIC 4 GOOD Barbershop at the Buffalo Chip Campground to go bald for good and help raise money in support of Kids & Chrome.
