Quinlan Hospice thanks Blue Knights
Thanks to the Blue Knights of Northern New Jersey for their generous donation to the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice of over $11,000 from the Chilly Chili motorcycle run held every January 1 at the Ogdensburg Firehouse. The Knights actually distributed over $56,000 to the Hospice, the Make a Wish Foundation and three families with special needs children. Each of the families received $12,500.
The presentation ceremony was held in a new location this year. Thanks to the Sparta VFW for the use of its hall and lawn, and to the Sparta Police for the use of their tents. Blue Knights Goodwill Ambassador Jeffrey Hunker did a great job as master of ceremonies and the food supplied by Homer’s Restaurant was fantastic.
The Blue Knights have supported the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice for over 30 years with the Chilly Chili Run. They also hold Gooch’s Garlic Run in June to support families in our community and another run from the Skylands Stadium in October to support Make a Wish.
Please support them as they support our community. Check out Bknjix.org for more info. Safe riding from your friends at the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice.
