Microsoft challenges Lone Star Ride participants to raise at least $1,000

2011 Lone Star Ride in Fort Worth

Microsoft, which became a sponsor of Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS this year, challenged riders to each raise $1,000. The first 100 riders to reach that goal will receive a copy of Office Professional 2010.

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the team Hope Riders is sponsoring a evening of comedy and music at the Interfaith Peace Chapel. Dinner and drinks are included. The first riders to raise their $1,000 will be recognized.

Among the entertainers is Jerry Calumn, who has worked as a professional comedian and is director of the Lone Star Ride.

This year’s Sept. 29-30 ride opens and closes at Microsoft’s Las Colinas campus.
