Some folks have wondered where the heck Bobby Haas has gone. Was he in some far-off land hanging out of a plane photographing magnificent creatures for his latest coffee table book? Was he masterminding a mega-gillion dollar deal that would set stocks soaring?
Actually, none of the above. Instead he has been focused in an entirely new direction… literally. Bobby has fallen in love with motorcycles. Instead of driving around in Lamborghinis on the weekend, he has been traveling the highways and by-ways with helmet on head and hands firmly on the handlebars of one of this motorcycles.
Since he bought his first bike in 2011, he’s been collecting cycles with the same enthusiasm and passion that he had for aerial photography the decade before. And while he admits that his time on the road is a “solo activity, so I don’t depend on anyone else to explore my passion,” he’s proud to share his collection of more than 100 bikes with others… at least to view at newly opened Haas Moto Museum and Sculpture Garden on Oak Lawn.
Lucky will be those who are part of the 2018 ReuNight on Thursday, November 8. Event Co-Chairs Joyce Goss and Kenny Goss have arranged for The Family Place fundraiser to be the very first public event at The Haas.
The evening will start off with cocktails in History Hall, where “a diverse array of metallic sculptures that echo the artistry of the cycles that stand nearby.” Guests will then head to The Race Track for a seated dinner with wine pairings followed by live auction luxury packages sponsored by Heritage Auctions.
This event is not going to be one of those with a cast of thousands. Rather, it will be limited to 170 with tickets starting at $1,500.
So rev up your Ducatis and Harleys and head over here for your reservations.
