Under a picturesque fall sky, hundreds of bikers lined up at Ross Dock in Fort Lee, NJ, to take part in the 17th Annual Motorcycle Run and Raffle, sponsored by Joseph M. Sanzari of Joseph M. Sanzari, Inc. This year’s event raised $720,000, making this Motorcycle Run one of the most successful to date, and bringing the total raised to more than $6 million.

“I congratulate the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation team and our good friend, Joe Sanzari, for hosting yet another successful event,” said Ihor S. Sawczuk, M.D., president of Hackensack Meridian Health Hackensack University Medical Center. “This event gives the community the opportunity to not only enjoy a beautiful day, but also to make a difference. I am so proud of the Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation team who worked so hard to make this day so memorable every year.”

Escorted by police from various towns for the 70-mile tour, the bikers rode from Ross Dock, across the George Washington Bridge to Bear Mountain, New York. They returned to Fort Lee via the Palisades Interstate Parkway.

“Our Charity Motorcycle Run and Raffle gets better and better every year,” said Joseph M. Sanzari, chair, Pascack Valley Medical Center Joint Venture Board and past chair of the Hackensack University Medical Center Board of Governors, and for which the charity run and motorcycle raffle is named. “This year, we had one of the largest groups ever participate, including 350 bikers and close to 500 participants. It really warms my heart knowing that this event brings the community together to support such a great cause.”

“This is truly one of the most popular events that we hold, and every year it seems to grow,” said Jon Fitzgerald, president and chief development officer, Hackensack University Medical Center Foundation. “The proceeds of this year’s Motorcycle Run and Raffle will benefit Emergency Mobile Services at Hackensack University Medical Center.”

The day started off at Ross Dock with a special VIP event, “Breakfast with Joe.” Bikers and friends enjoyed a full breakfast menu and a chance to say “thank you” to Joe in person. After the motorcycle run, the “Party Under the Bridge” at Ross Dock began, which included family-friendly games and plenty of food and live entertainment.

One of the highlights at the celebration included Mr. Sanzari’s young granddaughter, Mia Sanzari, pulling the winning ticket for the 2017 Harley-Davidson FLHTK Electra Glide Ultra Limited "Mysterious/Velocity Red," with a retail value of $28,049. The motorcycle and helmet were donated by Joseph M. Sanzari.
