Angel Bikes, Inc. Golf Outing in association with Long Island Blue Star Mothers - NY6 Chapter
On Wednesday June 24, 2015, Angel Bikes, Inc., in association with Blue Star Mothers Long Island NY6 Chapter, conducted its first annual golf outing. It took place at the Rocky Hill Golf and Country Club in Manorville, Long Island, New York.
With a tremendous outpouring of support from the Long Island business community, veterans related groups and organizations, elected and appointed local government officials, patriotic citizens and a number of Long Island philanthropic entities, this initial golf outing exceeded all expectations. Funds were raised to provide a number of disabled veterans with Angels Bikes.
That evening was topped off with a cocktail hour and dinner consisting of an outstanding carving station, pasta, ribs, chicken, chili, sausage & peppers, seafood, potatoes and vegetables. Included was an open bar and beverages.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of an Angel Bike to Holbrook, New York native Chris Levi. This gift was a complete surprise since Chris had no idea he would be receiving his Angel Bike that night. Chris, a U.S. Army Ranger, was severely wounded when a Humvee he was riding in was hit by an improvised exploding device in Iraq. Christopher suffered critical injuries, including the loss of both of his legs and serious wounds to his right arm. His Angel Bike was donated by the Ladies Auxiliary of American Legion Post 1880 in Ridge, New York.
