Poons is donating an original, matted-and-framed, acrylic and watercolor creation that will be auctioned during the American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association (AHRMA) Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL.
Bids for the silent auction will be accepted in the road race registration area until 5:00pm Saturday, October 9 and a live auction will bring the auction to a conclusion during the road race awards ceremony Saturday evening. Proceeds from the auction will benefit AHRMA, which is a not-for-profit organization.
“The AHRMA family includes an incredible variety of people, personalities, and talents” said Arthur Kowitz, 2021 Chairman of the AHRMA Board of Trustees. “Seeing Larry in the paddock and on the track makes AHRMA events even more special. His generosity in donating this original work speaks volumes about his passion and support for AHRMA.”
