Video: Several fundraising events planned this weekend

COACHELLA VALLEY, Calif. – It's a busy weekend in the Coachella Valley, with at least three fundraising events taking place Saturday.

The first event of the weekend kicking off at 7 a.m Saturday at Palm Desert Civic Center Park. It's the Coachella Valley Patriots Ride honoring veterans and first responders with a cycling event and walk. 

"Either active service members or veterans, it doesn't matter, they need to be thanked, and it's the awareness," said event organizer, Tim Esser.

You can also expect live music, food, and a vendors expo. More than $10,000 is expected to be raised. 

"All the money stays local in the Valley. We do not send any money out, so proceeds go to military, fire and police organizations," said Esser.

At 8:00 a.m, at Ruth Hardy Park in Palm Springs, you can expect thousands to participate in the 31st annual Desert Aids Walk. All funds raised will go to the Desert Aids Project, a health care center that  provided medical benefits to more than 4,000 people a year.

The Palm Springs Police Memorial Ride is also kicking off Saturday, at Palm Springs Motorsports. The ride starts at 10:30 am, at least 250 motorcyclists will ride in a memorial procession to PSPD, where a ceremony will honor fallen heroes, including Palm Springs Police Officers Lesley Zerebny and Jose 'Gil' Vega. The riders will head to Spa Resort Casino in Palm Springs for a celebration with food and music.
