Cruise night held to benefit Holyoke Soldiers Home

Posted: Updated:

The Holyoke Soldiers Home kicked off the Memorial Day weekend with its second annual Cruise Night.

The event featured dozens of classic automobiles and motorcycles, as well as memorabilia and history of the Indian Motorcycle Factory in Springfield.

All of the money raised Saturday evening will go towards recreation activities for veterans at the soldiers home.

While they raised money, organizers said the event was more about honoring the veterans.

"Today, we are paying tribute to those fallen soldiers, the veterans that are out there and remembering all those people who have fought for this country," said David Rice of the Stars and Stripes Club. "This is our way of paying them a tribute."

The next soldiers home event will be the third annual Victory for Veterans motorcycle run on May 31.
