As we are approaching the holiday season, it's an excellent time to remember our fallen and their ultimate sacrafice; another way to remember them is to sponsor a wreath.  Sponsoring a wreath through Wreaths Across America is easy. 

The Patriot Guard Riders of Eastern New York have once again been granted Group Sponsorship status within the Wreaths Across America organization. So what does our Group Sponsorship status mean? Well for every two wreaths that are ordered - using our group codes – Wreaths Across America will donate another wreath - we get 3 for 2. 


Important information 

Our Group Fundraiser Code is:  NY0057
Our Location ID is:  NYGSNS

Shootout for Soldiers

Canandaigua, New York - 07-21-18


Shootout for Soldiers is a 24 hour Lacrosse fundraiser that uses the game of Lacrosse as a way to raise money for Veterans charities and also to engage in the community. At our 2017 event we raised over $52,000 which was distributed to 4 National Veterans charities and 2 local Veteran charities. This years goal is to reach $75,000. They are already half way there. Patriot guard riders and several other groups participated in our opening ceremony last year.

Special Instructions:

This year we will be escorted by Police and Fire trucks and will include a tour around the VA hospital campus in Canandaigua. They have notified veterans at the facility so they can come out to view us ride by. Then we will proceed back to the field where we will drive down in front of stands, revving & making some noise is accepted and desired. We will then dismount bikes and walk onto playing field to stand flag line during opening words and the National Anthem.
This is a Short event. Last year news media was present and local papers. Lets show PGR supports our Veterans. Legion Riders from Canandaigua and Blue Star Riders will also be present and take part.
