Stones Office Equipment in Richmond VA has once again sponsored the Patriots Pack and The Ride for Jillian!
The final stop on the Pack’s cross country trip each year is at SOE and this time, owner Sam Stone pulled out all stops as Sharp President and CEO Mike Marusic and VP John Sheehan made the trip down to welcome the group of riders.
Other special guests included George Gorman, founder of The Jillian Fund, whom the Patriots Pack is riding for this year as well as Larry and Nick Coco of Coco Training.
Sam is a big sponsor of other charities besides the Pack and this year his generosity included State and local police as well as the Fire Department (who allowed Paco and Slaw to sit in their truck).
GreatAmerica was also a sponsor of this stop, sending lots of SWAG and love to greet us at this amazing stop!
Before leaving, Sam rolled out a special vest cake made to look like rider Mike Stramaglio’s “kut,” before presenting him with an America flag flown over a local memorial in his honor.
The Pack left in style with a motorcycle escort from the local police who raced ahead of us with lights and sirens wailing, blocking traffic and making sure we had safe passage out of Richmond!
An incredible way to finish our dealer visits. Thank you Sam and SOE for all you do!
Once again, the cross country ride was done in the name of The Jillian Fund and the Patriots Pack has set a goal of $100,000. For every $3,000 we raise, we help a family spend time with their critically ill or terminally ill child instead of working. The Jillian Fund literally keeps their lights on so they can be by their child’s side.
