GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Red River Valley Volunteer Fire Departments took home some extra money Thursday night.

32 volunteer fire departments from the Red River Valley received checks from the Red River Valley Motorcyclists.

The group donated about $57,000 they raised from their annual motorcycle show last month in Grand Forks.

The volunteer fire department from Park River sold the most raffle tickets for the show and they received the biggest check. It was $8,300.

"This will help out tremendously. It's a nice, a very nice surprise. I didn't anticipate that," Bob Lundquist with the Park River Volunteer Fire Department said.

"It's very exciting. It's what we work for all year. You know we spend a year putting this together and of course we've already started on the next year," Tim Gowan with the Red River Valley Motorcyclists said.

Red River Valley Motorcyclists plan on donating money from next year's motorcycle show to the Sunshine Foundation.
