Teamsters Local 700, along with Illinois Harley Davidson and Roxi’s Gaming Parlor, hosted a motorcycle run on Sunday, Aug. 6 to benefit the Teamsters Local 700 Benevolent Fund. So far, the event has raised more than $1,000 for the fund.
The ride kicked off at Illinois Harley in Countryside, Ill., on Sunday morning and welcomed both new and seasoned riders and their passengers. A special prayer was given by a minister to bless all of the riders before they left on their journey. Starting the ride on historic Route 66, riders made the 48-mile trip to Roxi’s Gaming Parlor in Minooka, Ill. where they enjoyed a barbeque, beverages, music and games.
Local 700 partnered with Roxi’s to honor the life of Anthony Sanfratello, who tragically lost his life in a car accident last year. Anthony’s father, Tim Sanfratello, is an owner of the gaming parlor.
Teamsters Local 700 would like to thank everyone that participated in the ride and gave a donation to the fund. Special thanks goes to Illinois Harley Davidson, Roxi’s Gaming Parlor and the entire Sanfratello family.
