Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS
Cross-Country Motorcycle Trip
The Long Reach Long Riders, led by Bill “Uncle Bill” Sapsis, announce plans for a cross-country motorcycle trip in June, 2005.
Bill, whose career in the technical side of the entertainment business has taken him to 5 continents, the White House and Broadway, has formed two groups of like-minded technicians/motorcycle enthusiasts to ride in a fundraiser for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
“I think the mission statement sums up our hopes and goals for the ride quite well” noted Bill.
“It is the goal of the Long Reach Long Riders to raise money and remind those in the entertainment industry that the needs of organizations like Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS do not diminish even in difficult economic times. Many times in the past the people who work in the spotlight have heeded the call to serve with benefit performances, celebrity auctions and similar functions. We, the technicians and designers who work backstage, believe it’s now our turn.”
“We also want to have some fun on the way.”
The ride begins on June 26, 2005 in Washington DC and San Diego, CA. The 2 groups meet in Hays, Kansas on June 28 and proceed north to Rapid City, South Dakota for some fantastic rides and camaraderie. We are hoping that more riders will join us this year.
