Wantage, NJ – Lifeline Auto Repair hosted its first annual motorcycle run for charity on Sunday, June 2, 2013. In celebration of Lifeline’s grand opening in January 2013, owners Anthony and Amanda Ianneillo organized a motorcycle run and barbeque to raise funds for Birth Haven, a local Sussex County program that provides shelter, support, and education for homeless, pregnant women. The event raised $1,000 in donations for Birth Haven.
Starting and ending at Lifeline Auto Repair in Wantage, NJ, the motorcycle run took riders throughout Sussex County, NJ and Orange County, NY. Following the ride, participants and supporters were invited to a complimentary barbeque held at Lifeline Auto Repair. Popular local musician, Ciro Patti, played during the event.
