SHOUT OUT: The Paramus PD added a 2015 Harley Davidson police motorcycle during a raffle at the 15th Annual Andiamo Restaurant Benefit Motorcycle Run, which drew more than 1,200 riders today.
What began as a way by restaurateur Don Dickstein to buy a cycle for Cresskill police in 1999 has raised more than $1 million for, among others, Englewood Hospital and Medical Center, JDF, Special Olympics NJ and various local charities.
This year’s nearly 60-mile event centered, as usual, on the Hardenburgh Avenue restaurant in Haworth and continued with a run across the George Washington Bridge and back, escorted by the Fort Lee Police Department’s Motorcycle Unit and various other motorcycle law enforcement officers.
The GWB was closed temporarily as the riders — from throughout New Jersey and beyond — quickly passed through.
It all culminated with a block party outside Andiamo’s, joined by thousands of supporters and featuring the band Third Rail.
Various participants and attendees took the photos below. Thank you to all of them — and to Andiamo.
