By: merry meyer

FREDERICK, MD – November 18, 2012, not even Hurricane Sandy could keep Bike Night III down! With the special guest appearance from One Call Concepts’ custom designed Paul Jr. Designs 811 bike, the Fun Bus, face painting, and local vendors on site, Bike Night III at Rita’s Italian Ice in Frederick raised over $5,000 to support the Patty Pollatos Fund, Inc.

People came from all over the tri-state area to participate in the benefit show put on by a small team of individuals with a heart for their community. DJ Ewok emceed the event, keeping the tunes and raffles going all afternoon and announcing the winners in several categories for motorcycles and cars! Commemorative plaques and bragging rights were given to each winner.
One thing’s for certain, it was a memorable end to the 2012 season for Rita’s Italian Ice of Frederick. “We began the first day of the 2012 season with a huge charity event, it’s only fitting we close it with one,” commented Lori Rovito, owner of Rita’s of Frederick.
“We are a group of caring people who help stand in the gap for the middle class American who is in need during a medical crisis. We are 100% volunteer and 100% of proceeds raised by the recipients are used for the recipients,” said Kim Smith, Vice-President of the Patty Pollatos Fund, Inc. This was the third Bike Night event hosted by Rita’s of Frederick in which the proceeds are given to this local charity.
