The Heart to Hearts Ride 4 Research Charity Poker Run and Liquidator Auctions to be held during 2012 Daytona Bike Week.

VERONA, WI and DAYTONA BEACH, FL – September 14, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – The Liquidator and Manheim Daytona Beach are thrilled to announce, the “Heart to Hearts Ride 4 Research Charity Poker Run and Auctions” to be held during Daytona Bike Week 2012.

Manheim’s Heart to Hearts program was founded in memory of Michael P. Fisher, the company’s lead attorney and partner at Dow, Lohnes & Albertson, who was killed in a plane crash in 1998.

The program was created to help Manheim employees; customers and vendors raise funds and collect donated items for the Michael P. Fisher Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) at the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Sibley Heart Center.

Since its inception, the Heart to Hearts program has raised more than $5.8 million and has touched the lives of the children and families who visit the Michael P. Fisher CICU. At Manheim, we believe there is no better way to honor our friend and colleague.

The Poker Run and Liquidator Auctions’ will be done under the “Heart to Hearts” and “Ride 4 Research” banners. Ride 4 Research was founded in memory of Darryll Ceccoli, Manheim Auction’s past president, who died unexpectedly in 2010. 100% of the proceeds generated during these events will go to benefit Manheim’s Heart to Hearts program- supporting the Michael P. Fisher CICU at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Additional announcements for the event will be forthcoming regarding the activities, dates, times and event supporters.
