THUMPERRRR's picture

Calvert Hospice recently received a $1,000 donation from the Hell’s Angels Maryland Bike & Car Show, which was held in July at the Calvert County Fairgrounds in Prince Frederick.

The Hell’s Angels Nomads MD chapter organized the family-friendly event, which featured a car and bike show, local entertainment, special visitors from out of town, food vendors including Cutty’s BBQ and Captain Smith’s seafood, and a live broadcast from Hawkeye from 97.7's The Rocket.

Special guest Rusty Coons from "Sons of Anarchy" attended and autographed photos.

Many members of the local chapter have been impacted by Calvert Hospice.

“Numerous members of our group have been touched by Calvert Hospice; this is why we chose Calvert Hospice,” event organizer John Beal said.

“Seventeen years ago, Calvert Hospice cared for our grandmother,” said Karen Horton, the wife of a Hell’s Angels Nomads MD chapter member. “The day she passed, I called you all and asked, 'What do I do?' You said there’s nothing else to do, you’ve done everything you’re supposed to; now it’s our turn to take over.”

Hell’s Angels Nomads MD chapter member Kevin Maloney helped with the groundbreaking and construction of the Burnett Calvert Hospice House.

The Hell’s Angels Nomads MD chapter is hoping to make the show an annual event, with next year's event scheduled or July 13.
