Winner announced in Langford Fire Rescue’s Harley draw

Thousands of dollars raised for Muscular Dystrophy Canada

Hog heaven, to say the least.

That’s how Victoria resident Aaron Hawkes must have felt when his ticket was drawn as the winning entry for a brand new 2015 Harley Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle. The raffle was part of Langford Fire and Rescue’s long-term commitment to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

The winning ticket was one of about 430 sold at $100 each for the motorcycle, valued at $26,000 and provided by Barnes Harley-Davidson in Langford. Brian Hunt of White Rock won the second prize of a $1,000 Harley-Davison gift card.

Former deputy chief Kerry Zado has been involved in at least 10 Harley draws during the past 20 years.

“The money we raised will provide client services, equipment and research for people with neuro-muscular disorders,” said Zado, who retired in September after more than 25 years with Langford Fire Rescue.
