The 2010 Stanley Cup Championship Chicago Blackhawks Raffle Custom-Built Chopper from Orange County Choppers
The 2010 Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks, in conjunction with the Special Kids Network and the Orange County Choppers Foundation, raffled off a special, custom-built bike that was signed by the winning team members. Proceeds from the raffle benefited the Chicago Blackhawk Charities, the Orange County Choppers Foundation and the Special Kids Network. Paul Teutul Sr., the founder of Orange County Ironworks and Orange County Choppers and star of the reality television show “American Chopper,” was at the United Center to unveil the bike on the ice.
The Blackhawks logo is displayed on the gas tank, which is autographed by players and coaches from the Stanley Cup Championship team. The bike’s rims emulate hockey sticks and pucks and the handlebars depict the taped butt-end of a hockey stick. Sponsored by Aaron Equipment Company, Inc, the bike was displayed at several Blackhawks home games at the United Center and at various locations around Chicago.
The bike was raffled off at the end of the 2011 season and won by a long time Blackhawk fan.
Chicago Blackhawk Charities supports programs and institutions throughout Illinois that work toward creating a better tomorrow for the youth. An independent non-profit organization, the Special Kids Network was created to provide funding for programs that help children and young adults with special needs. The philanthropic arm of Orange County Choppers, the OCC Foundation designs tribute bikes and undertakes charity builds in support of families in need, American men and women in the armed services, and others.
