We at Saddlemen were pleased to hear about the success of last holiday season's Toy Run organized by the High Desert Chapter of the Black Sheep. The club officers kindly sent us photos of the raffle winners who took home Saddlemen luggage. The proceeds of the raffle went towards a cash donation to the Salvation Army.

Besides the raffle earnings, the Toy Run collected a whole lot... of toys!

Saddlemen regularly contributes products to charity. We're happy to have been able to brighten last Christmas time for families and children in need.
