MT. EPHRIAM, N.J. – Barb’s Harley-Davidson is helping out the Philadelphia Flyers and the Flyers Wives Carnival by donating a bike for the charity.

The event, planned for March 3, is one of the oldest and most successful one-day charity events hosted by any professional sports team. The first Carnival was held Feb. 1, 1977. Later that year, one of the Flyers’ own, Barry Ashbee, died of leukemia. His death brought focus to the Flyers Wives Carnival.

Since its inception, Comcast-Spectacor Charities, which encompasses Flyers Charities and Global Spectrum Charities, has contributed $25 million to charity.

The funds raised during the annual Flyers Wives Carnival and other Comcast-Spectacor Charities fundraising events have helped support several nonprofit organizations that benefit everything from health care initiatives such as heart health, stroke and cancer awareness to various youth recreation programs.
