As one of the state’s largest rides, the annual car and motorcycle event draws more than 1,000 riders and raises much-needed funds each year to expand educational resources for children and with developmental disabilities as well as autism and support opportunities for adults with disabilities to work and live in the community.
This year, a donated signed Paul Reed Smith guitar will be sold through an online auction with all proceeds going to support Benedictine.
