The Julian Cider Run, A Fundraiser for At-Risk Kids,
Hosted by Keith and Priscilla Webb
By Solution Effect, Staff Writer, Stephen Gannon
Julian’s own Keith and Priscilla Webb, owners of Julian Apple Lane Orchards, generously hosted the 4th Annual Julian Cider Run,
a motorcycle run from Sweetwater Harley Davidson in San Diego to Julian for Apple Cider, barbeque, fun and prizes Saturday, October 3rd at their Julian home in the Wynola area of Julian. They hosted about 150 hardened bikers with some very soft hearts. Participating bikers registered at Sweetwater Harley-Davidson (3201 Hoover Ave., San Diego, CA 91950) where they ate a continental breakfast at 10:00 am with coffee, juice, and gifts. Kickstands were up at 11:00 am. Then together, in biker fashion, they made their way to Julian, to meet with the Webbs at their home. The party in Julian kicked off at 12:30 pm with live music by The One Two’s & The Fighting Able, a hearty BBQ lunch – ribs, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, coleslaw, beans & more – drinks, cider samples & apple pie. There were also a variety of vendors, activities and lots of opportunities to win awesome prizes – restaurant gift cards, jewelry, Chargers tickets, Disneyland tickets and much more.
But that’s the end of the story. The beginning of the story is one amazing woman, Priscilla Webb. This is Priscilla’s 4th barbecue and fundraiser. Priscilla is one of the Aseltine Angels, a group of friends and philanthropic folk who are dedicated to raising funds for the special Aseltine School and the very special students in attendance there. In addition to opening up her designer home to these rugged but very friendly bikers, Priscilla spent the two days before the event cooking most of the food. This year was a record fundraiser serving well over 100 meals–more than any fundraiser previous. When was the last time you cooked over 150 meals of barbecued ribs, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, coleslaw, and beans and drinks. Oh, I almost forgot—Priscilla Webb is 90 years old.
100% of the proceeds go to the non-profit Aseltine School, a unique resource to support and empower some of San Diego County’s most underserved, “at-risk” youth – students whose needs have not been met in the public schools.
