PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum has announced that it will host the inaugural "Leather & Ice" holiday party on Saturday, December 6, 2003, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Museum. The evening's festivities will feature live entertainment, food, a cash bar and, as the highlight of the event, a silent auction.

The Leather & Ice silent auction will feature sports memorabilia, motorcycling collectibles, and motorcycles themselves. In addition, prizes will be awarded to guests for costumes that best suit the "leather and ice" theme -- combining a leather jacket with a string of pearls, for example, or wearing motocross boots with a three-piece suit.

The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum has been in its present location, on the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association in Pickerington, Ohio, since 1999, and enjoys national media attention for the high quality of its exhibits' content and design. Both in the world of motorcycling and in the wider world of cultural entertainment, the Museum has established itself as the nation's premier motorcycling museum.

The goal of the Leather & Ice holiday party is to raise money for The Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, which is administered by the American Motorcycle Heritage Foundation, a non-profit public foundation devoted to the preservation of America's motorcycling heritage. Tickets are $25 per person and are available by phone (614-856-2222), fax (614-856-2221), or mail. Space is limited, so making reservations early is recommended.

To donate an item to the Leather & Ice silent auction, contact Susan Rutter at srutter@motorcyclemuseum.org or 614-856-2222 extension 1340. Deadline for donations is November 21.

The goal of the Motorcycle Hall of Fame Museum, located on the campus of the American Motorcyclist Association in Pickerington, Ohio, is to tell the stories and preserve the history of motorcycling. The Motorcycle Hall of Fame honors those who have contributed notably to the sport, and three major exhibition halls showcase the machines and memorabilia that have shaped motorcycling. The Museum is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily; noon to 4.p.m. on Memorial Day, Independence Day and Labor Day; and closed on New Year's, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Adult admission is $5 per person; ages 17 and under are admitted free. For more information, call (614) 856-2222, or visit the Museum's website at www.motorcyclemuseum.org.
