QT’s 9th Anniversary Charity Event!

North Carolina’s Queens Together Making Changes motorcycle club, affectionately known as ‘dem Badd Azz QT’s celebrated their 9th Anniversary charity event in grand style with a Brazilian Carnivale theme party.

Although their 9th Anniversary fell on Easter weekend, early estimates have more than 2,400 still coming out to support from as far away as Kansas City, St. Louis, Boston, Atlanta, Philly, New York, New Jersey, Indianapolis and Cleveland. O’mens’ BigMucci, creator of the infamous Biker’s Shuffle was also found mixing it up with the crowd.

Of course the DMV was representing with Platinum Dreams, Immortal Soulz, Game 7 Ryderz, Deuces Wild, Black Tigers, Platinum Rollers, MD Hill Ryders, MD Rebels, Soulja Girlz, Speed Divas, Swagg City Ryderz, #1 Stunnas, DC Sportbike Riders and Sons of Black Caesar to name a few with a special shout to Smokn Curves’ for their most represented out of state female club win, Down-N-Dirty for winning the most represented male club and Bloc Burnaz for winning the most represented multi-chapter club.

As alluded to, the QT’s anniversary is more than just that. It is an event. The weekend included a tastefully sexy fashion show featuring something for both men and women which also included gear by sponsor Speed and Strength and special Black Hoody fashion tribute for Trayvon Martin. Keeping the party jumping was none other the Ruff Ryder’s DJ Storm who moved the crowd with his weaponry of skills including mixing in DC’s go-go.

Saturday morning began with a charity ride lead by Drag Bike Champion Rickey Gadson and Team No Limit Motorsport’s Jason Britton. Other activities included a street festival, parade, wheelie machine by iWheelie and stunt show by Jason and King Rommel, NY & Team Radical. Not forgetting their event took place during Easter, the QT’s included an Easter egg hunt and Easter appropriate puppet show for the little riders in attendance. Also keeping the kids entertained was a QT’s game room thanks to sponsor Best Buy complete with game stations, large flat screen displays and array of video games which the younger crowd thoroughly enjoyed.

As great as the festivities and activities were, this charity weekend was also about raising awareness and money for the QT’s chosen charity, Raleigh’s Interact Battered Women’s Shelter for which they have raised more the $12,000. Once again dispelling the negative image far too often portrayed about our community.

The QT’s typically take some time off before planning their next anniversary. Not this year. “With 2013 being our 10th year Anniversary, we’re going straight into the planning phase”, says QT President Quiet Storm. With such a successful 9th Anniversary, there’s no telling what’s in store for their 10th.
