The Michael P. Donaghy "Rock and Ride Your Heart Out" Benefit

Recently my brother Michael P. Donaghy a local resident of Nashua, NH passed away of a Heart Attack at age 34. In his Memory we have started a Benefit called the Michael P. Donaghy, Rock and Ride Your Heart Out Benefit. The 1st Annual Benefit will be held at Greeley Park in Nashua, NH on August 1st, 2009. The benefit will be broken into two (2) parts; the first part is an annual motorcycle ride on a pre-determined route, and the second is a 4 hour rock concert being put on by the Jack Duncan Band, at the Greeley Park Pavilion.

We are working directly with the American Heart Association on this event, which all proceeds are directly benefiting, to solicit Sponsorships, Donations, Raffle Items, and misc. items such as T-Shirts, signage etc.

We are asking you and your organization to help the American Heart Association by donating and/or sponsoring this event! There is no donation or raffle product too large or too small! Please help us make the Annual Rock and Ride Your Heart Out Benefit a big success!


From the Heart Association:

Our statistics show that heart disease and stroke, the number one and three killers, claimed the lives of almost 1,000,000 people last year. That is one person every 33 seconds. Your support will help change this sad fact.

The American Heart Association spent over $352 million on research, public and professional education and community program last year, with over $1.5 million being allocated to research right here in New Hampshire. Your dollars are used to fund the types of research that have led to such life-saving innovations as the implantable pacemaker, new medications for managing blood pressure and cholesterol, and new surgical techniques.

It is through your commitment and the commitment of organizations like the “Rock and Ride Your Heart Out Benefit“ and all of your partners on this special event that we are able to make a real difference in the fight against heart disease and stroke. Together we are changing – and saving – lives!
Again, we are asking you and your organization to help the American Heart Association by donating and/or sponsoring the Rock and Ride Your Heart Out Event! If you are able to help this cause, please contact us directly using the contact details below. We understand if you are not able to sponsor this event as a company and/or individual – but, if you can, please spread the word by letting your colleagues, friends, family, and other contacts know about it! Please provide them the date and location of the show – and give them our website address so they can find out more about this benefit! http://www.rryho.com/ or http://www.rockandrideyourheartout.com/.

Sincerely With Heart,

Jason Donaghy

Anyone interested in being apart of the ride, please shoot me a PM. All riders will get a T-shirt from the benefit, so I will also need to know what size shirt you wear.

thanks

Once the website shows again... my brother was supposed to reset the server this morning it will have all the details. Tim and I are putting up most of the cash out of our own pockets for the event and all the proceeds will go directly to the American Heart Association in Memory of Mike. This is going to become an annual event.
