Two legendary brands will come together at Sturgis to honor their heritage and look toward their promising futures in front of a capacity crowd.

These one of a kind bikes will then tour with Indian Motorcycles and Jack Daniels, starting at Sturgis where they will be showcased at the Indian display at 3rd and Lazelle and the Jack Daniels display at 2nd and Lazelle. The bikes will then be auctioned off to support Camp Southern Ground, the passion project of Zac Brown, whose mission is to operate a camp that will allow children to overcome academic, social and emotional difficulties so that they may reach their full potential.

CAMP SOUTHERN GROUND
Nestled on nearly 500 acres in the farmlands of Georgia, Camp Southern Ground is the passion project of GRAMMY-Award winning artist Zac Brown. Inspired by his own experiences as a camp counselor, Zac’s vision is to create a state-of-the-art facility whose programs will serve children ages 7-17 with both typical and special needs. Set to open in Spring 2014, the camp will have activities that will challenge, educate, and inspire children with diverse abilities and from all socioeconomic backgrounds, races, and religions. Among the many traditional camp activities that will foster youth development and create teachable moments for campers, plans are in place to align certain elements of the facility with the latest innovative therapies and technology for children affected by neurobehavioral disorders.?
Zac has long recognized the necessity for every child to have access to the best resources to be able to grow and succeed, and accordingly, Camp?Southern Ground will be a place for children and their families to learn healthy life skills through an advanced program involving superior nutrition, physical exercise, and the latest practices in therapy—all administered by a knowledgeable staff.
