The Maynard, O’Connor team will make its debut appearance at Americade 2010 in Lake George, N.Y. Tuesday, June 8 to Saturday, June 12 operating a booth at the Americade Expo, located in the Lake George Forum off Main Street in the village.
The purpose of our presence at Americade is two fold. First and foremost, we will be raising funds for one of our clients, Shane Foss, a 23-year-old man who suffered devastating and permanent injuries during a motorcycle accident in September 2009. Shane is a remarkable man who is now unable to continue his career as a resident counselor working with the mentally handicapped at Alternative Living Group. We will raffle off several items donated by local motorcycle dealers and will collect donations to help Shane with his escalating medical and living expenses.
In addition, we will raise money to promote motorcycle awareness through a public radio campaign. It’s that time of year… the weather is warming up and motorcycles are everywhere. Several members of the Maynard, O’Connor team and their families are motorcycle enthusiasts, and we are asking that automobile operators take a second look while they’re driving and share the road with their two-wheeled counterparts. Remember, a second look can save a life.
If you’re in the area, stop by our booth at Americade, enter to win one of our raffle prizes and help out Shane. If you would like to make a donation, please send a check payable to the Shane Foss Motorcycle Awareness Fund to:Americade 2010 Shane Foss Motorcycle Awareness Fund c/o Concetta R. Lomanto, Esq.
