Ride 4 Pnk Challenge!

This year we are stepping up our fundraising game in a fun and exciting way. The Pnk Pineapple's Ride 4 Pnk Mileage Challenge will award the motorcycle riders who put the most miles on their bike between June and September at our 5th Annual Power of P!nk Car Wash.

Here is how it works, you come out on May 4th or 11th to one of the first two Cycle Sundays events at Mr. G's Fast Lane in Catonsville and sign up. There is a $20 dollar fee, but remember this goes to charity! One member of our Pnk Pineapple team will come and note your mileage and you're good to go. Then during the summer you can come to any Cycle Sundays event to check in and we will track your miles and update them online so you can see where the competition is at and have your bragging rights!






At the end of the summer, you come out to the annual car wash for your final check in and the winners will receive a prize pack featuring gifts donated by our wonderful sponsors. Yes, that's right, there will be more than one winner depending on the category. Women, Men, Sport Bike Riders, Cruisers, and Harley's all come out.



So come out sign up and show everyone you're about that Bike Life!

Play 4 Kay

For basketball fans who want to give back, it is almost time for the yearly Play 4 Kay fundraiser. If you don't know about Kay Yow here is a little bit of her background from the website:


Kay Yow, former North Carolina State University head women’s basketball coach, was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987, and passed away on January 24, 2009, after facing her third bout with the disease. With the creation of the Fund, Kay hoped to raise money to further cutting-edge research conducted by the nation’s top doctors and medical experts to allow more and more cancer patients to have access to experimental drugs and clinical trials. Since the majority of these research projects are privately funded, these researchers desperately need our support in order for them to continue to make strides in finding a cure for cancer. - See more at: http://www.play4kay.org/faf/help/helpAboutOrg.asp?ievent=1081067&lis=1&kntae1081067=6893B0DC08B744969552DCEB1CD162E4#sthash.dqDYJHOV.dpuf


Check out Play 4 Kay to support both women's basketball and Breast Cancer research and awareness.

The 2014 Summer Series

For 2014 we are back with Cycle Sunday's at Mr. G's Fast Lane on the corner of Route 40 and Johnny Cake Road. Come out as the weather warms up and get a cool drink or a shake before you get back on your bike and ride out the rest of your Sunday evening. When you make a purchase, Mr. G's will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Pnk Pineapple to distribute to our benefactors this year. If you came out last year you know we have a good time with DJ's, music, face painting and more.

Yes, the themes are back this year! We are also still looking for sponsors and vendors or service providers to advertise and sample their services to the attendees. Sunday April 27, will be the first edition and we will be getting a visit from Pnk Pineapple Certified, Romney Motorcycles. Come out and talk to some of the friendly sales people so that you can get ready for summer, or better yet, your trip to Myrtle Beach this Memorial Day Weekend.

Don't forget to like us on Facebook for more updates!

Party With A Purpose

This past November, Pnk Pineapple had the pleasure of participating in the Black Tigers Motorcycle Club Anniversary/Charity Weekend. Every year this motorcycle club throws an event filled weekend but it's main purpose is charity. With it's signature Pajama Jammy Jam, motorcyclist and others came from near and far to party. Though this is the main event, where it is not strange to see wildlife, the whole goal of the weekend is to raise money for 5 causes; 5 Charities 1 Weekend. The 5 charitable causes are The Bea Gaddy Shelter (the club's flagship charity), Breast Cancer Awareness, The American Red Cross Blood Drive, HIV Awareness, and The Girl Scouts of Central Maryland.


This event started years ago at the Kappa House in Baltimore, MD where the entry fee included a non-perishable food item. And now in 2013, the event has progressed. Selling out multiple hotels and party goers scrambling to find tickets and to pick out their outfits to match the theme for the year. From 5 members to well over 60 members this club has always been about giving back. For 2014, the club wants its guest to know how important it is to give back. You can have a good time while giving back. The Black Tigers Motorcycle Club views giving back "seriously [here] but understand it can also be fun and a way for people to interact." Because of their "unique themes or actions in the world of hospitality" their charity weekend has been Pnk Pineapple Certified.

Operation Give Back

Have you ever been to a restaurant where they are constantly giving back to organizations such as Toys for Tots, Wounded Warrior Project, or the USO? The mission at Mission BBQ is to serve. At noon, faithfully, everyone in the restaurant sings The Star-Spangled Banner. With its Glen Burnie location, it is often a place where our local service men and women along with the service men and women from Ft. Meade come for lunch. Mission BBQ has a 9-11 commemorative cup campaign that raises money for local fire, police, and EMS personnel. The owners Bill Kraus and Stephen Newton have found a way to own a successful business as well as constantly giving back to local and national service men and women. Because of Mission BBQ's "unique themes or actions in the world of hospitality" they have been PNK Pineapple certified.
