StarRide 2013 Success!
It was a beautiful, crisp September morning and 150 bikers gathered for the second annual StarRide event. Riders from 4 years old to grandparents rode off on their choice of four routes around Ocean Drive and surrounds. Afterwards, they gathered for refreshments and fun. Those who had purchased “keys to unlock a child’s future” had a one in seven chance to unlock the treasure boxes filled with fantastic prizes. These included items such as a pair of Red Sox tickets, a $100 gift certificate that could be used at any one of the Newport Harbor Restaurant Group’s restaurants, several $100 gift certificates to Sequin, an opportunity to blow glass at Thames Glass, an Alex and Ani bracelet and much, much more.
The $14,000 raised during the ride will help fund tuition aid, after-school and summer programs, tutoring and mentoring for those high-risk, low-income children in Newport County. About a dozen of the event riders were Star Kids themselves.
