Sons of Anarchy Cast will lead the morning ride followed by live performances from Blackberry Smoke and more!
Just to clear the air, this is a no strings attached post. I just happen to be a Sons of Anarchy fan and think this is a great cause. M’kay?
The 2nd Annual Boot Ride and Rally will take place in Los Angeles on Sunday, August 26th, 2012.

Non-riders are invited to The Happy Ending Bar & Restaurant ($25) to see the riders roll in and enjoy the concert.

Proceeds from the ride and rally, along with the Boot Campaign’s sale of military combat boots, are used to fund veteran’s initiatives and programs through the Boot Campaign and a variety of charity partners such as Military Warriors Support Foundation, Wounded Wear, Not Alone, Special Ops Survivors, Armed Forces Foundation and Lone Survivor Foundation, that help with a variety of both physical and emotional issues that returning soldiers face today.
