It was an absolute full house for the unveiling of the Diamond P Chopper at the Prime Event Center on Friday night, January 15, 2010.
The Diamond P Chopper is a memorial to the ACS (American Cancer Society) and all that are fighting cancer, those who were lost to cancer, and those who have survived cancer.
Donations went to the American Cancer Society.
The American Cancer Society helps provide the glimmer of hope in all they do from the Relay for Life, to Make a Wish, and on, and on, with support for both the patient and their families. The goal is to raise as much as possible for the ACS.

The bike owner Fred Pickering (Right)
of Midland Michigan will eventually raffle or auction off the Diamond P to raise even more for the ACS. After the debut of the bike in Bay City, Michigan, Pickering will go on a national tour showcasing his bike to help raise awareness for the American Cancer Society.
Vinnie & Cody of V-Force Customs who built the Chopper were on hand for Autographs and pictures after the unveiling and also the following day on Saturday at Great Lakes Harley-Davidson.
A U2 tribute band "Vertigo USA" was the entertainment for the night.
