Knoxville Harley group revvs up Santa's sleigh to bring presents to children

The HOG riders roll up to children's houses with Santa on a motorcycle pulled sleigh to deliver Christmas cheer.

The Harley Owners Group in Knoxville has been raising money and delivering presents to foster children in Knoxville for around 15 years.

The HOG riders raise money for the presents by selling hamburgers and hotdogs outside of Bootleggers Harley Davidson off of Lovell Road.

In 2018, they were able to help six families during the Christmas season.

Santa leads the pack from Bootleggers on a car sleigh pulled by motorcycle reindeer. From there, the group travels together and rolls up to each house with engines revving.

Tom Bruno with East Tennessee Knoxville Chapter HOG says it's so important for them to break the stigma of motorcycle groups. He hopes people will see all the good they are able to do and all the smiles they are able to create, especially during the season of giving.
