We love our sponsors, who donate cash, auction and raffle goods, advertising, food, activities, and much, much more. Rally sponsors subsidize the cost of the rally, and allow us to donate generously to the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Program of Any Baby Can. Rally Sponsors, we SALUTE you!
Sponsor from the very first year!
Steve Conn made a really nice short film about the Harvest Classic Rally. There is a link to the film ‘The Story of the Harvest Classic’ on the homepage of the site. Check it out, and you’ll know what the rally is all about!
Jaime Elkins and his crew are heroes! In 2015, they came out to a wet, rainy rally, and showed so much heart and soul. They warmed up everybody in the room, and helped to raise a record amount of money in the auction for the Candlelighters. Thanks Guys!
Have we mentioned how much we love the Alamo Drafthouse lately? These guys bring it in STYLE. Watching a movie on their 100ft inflatable screen and killer soundsystem, while laying on a blanket surrounded by 100s of other motorheads is something you won’t forget. Last year, we played The Sound of Music…..KIDDING! We only play badass, hard to find moto-gems, and we have hit a few homers (as well as a few grounders) over the years. A motorcycle drive-in…what? Stay tuned for a special screening this year!
Over 13 years ago, Fred and Maggie tragically lost their son Charlie after an 18 month battle with a Meduloblastoma brain tumor. Time goes on, but Charlie’s memory remains strong. The Harvest Classic is 100% dedicated to supporting those families who are battling cancer, and honoring those who have lost the battle. These young people are heroes, and they will never be forgotten. Fred and Maggie are wonderful people, and one of the ways that they honor Charlie’s memory is by supporting the Harvest Classic.
In 2015, they donated an amazing Triumph Bonneville vintage roadracer, which raised $13,000 for the Candlelighters! For 2016, Fred is working with Dr. J to restore a beautiful Rickman Montessa to donate to the rally.
Thanks Fred and Maggie, for your on-going support of the Harvest Classic. Look forward to seeing you both in Luckenbach in October!
Rick and Becke are awesome! They have sponsored the rally for many years as Clone Cubicles, but have now started a new
adventure by renovating a cool old service station/ grocery store on Hwy 16, and turned it into a beautiful venue with a stage and an outdoor dance floor. Please check out the Pecan Grove Store for weddings, private parties, etc.
Their son Matt is a childhood cancer survivor, so the cause really resonates with them in a personal way. From the very first year, they have been in our corner. Thanks Rick and Becke!
Long-time supporters of the Rally with a huge impact financially AND on the character of the event. Who doesn’t love to see these masters of balance at play?
Big thanks to our sponsors over at Woods Fun Center and BMW Motorcycles of Austin. Each year, they hit us up with cash and raffle swag to support the Candlelighters. Be sure to stop by to check out their new expanded showroom, which now features BMW and Triumph motorcycles.
Every year, our friends over at Opal Divine’s donate over 600 lbs of choice brisket and sausage for us to cook for the Saturday night barbecue dinner. That’s a lot of meat! Proprietors Mike and Susan are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and totally get what the rally is about. Next time you are in Austin, stop by one of their 3 locations and say hi!
Hall of Famer!
Mike has attended every single Harvest Classic Rally. After the first rally, Mike approached us and said that he noticed that we didn’t have any Platinum Sponsors yet. He said that he wanted to throw down a challenge to others by signing up as our first Platinum Sponsor. Mike has been a Platinum Sponsor ever since! As the rally has matured, we have added lots of sponsors, and currently enjoy strong support from a loyal base of sponsors who totally get what the rally is about. But we will always remember Mike as the man who led the charge. Thanks Mike, for all that you do to support the Harvest Classic Rally!
One of the barbecue chefs who works all night to smoke up the tastiest, moistest brisket is Dan Brown, who also has a day job as a Bank V.P. Dan introduced this rally to Wells Fargo, who likes our family-friendly mission, and decided to join as rally sponsors. Thanks Dan and Wells Fargo Bank for all that you do!
Beth and the Boys over at Sign Effects have donated all of the beautiful signs that you have ever seen at the rally. They work overtime and after hours to make these signs, and we really, really appreciated these guys, who truly REPRAZENT the spirit of the rally!
