"Ride To The Dunes" For Child Abuse Awareness Led by Grand Marshal, Lorenzo Lamas

Will Be Held Sunday June 3, 2012!

LOS ANGELES, CA - April 21, 2012 - Organizers have announced that the much anticipated 'Ride to the Dunes' for Child Abuse Awareness, led by Grand Marshal, Lorenzo Lamas, scheduled for Sunday June 3, 2012 will begin with a beautiful ride from Bartels' Harley-Davidson, 4141 Lincoln Blvd., Marina Del Rey, CA to the serene Newport Dunes Resort, Newport Beach, CA. Lamas will be joined by cast members from The Sons of Anarchy, Southland and American Ninja; he invites the public to join him as well.

"As parents and Americans, we owe it to ourselves to support American military and American kids however we can. B.A.C.A. is one of many legit organizations out there seeking to raise awareness of child abuse and I call on every rider within safe riding distance to Marina Del Rey to come out and ride to support the cause," says Lamas.

'Ride to the Dunes' for Child Abuse Awareness will conclude at the beautiful waterside setting of Newport Dunes Resort, Newport Beach, CA with lunch and a concert by Better Chemistry.

'Ride To The Dunes' will focus on the epidemic state of child abuse in America with the presentation of the The Children's Wall of Tears. 4.8 children die at the hands of their caretakers every day! More than 3 million cases of child abuse are reported each year. Organizations like BACA, WACA and CASA lobby to assist children who are in danger from their abusers and to bring a greater public awareness to help make a difference in a child's life.

'Ride To The Dunes' will also recognize those organizations for their untiring work for children: BACA Los Angeles, The Children's Wall of Tears, War Against Child Abuse, CASA, LA and CASA, OC.
