What a great day at Cedar Beach, New York last Friday. A dozen volunteers from Macy's stores all over Long Island joined me at the 2nd Annual Babylon to Beaches portion of the Wounded Warrior Project's Empire State Soldier Ride.
With the Suffolk County 1st Police Precinct Brotherhood working the grills, the Macy's volunteers served hot dogs and hamburgers for two hours to a record 1,000 people who participated in the 22 mile bicycle ride. The volunteers were enthusiastic and up for anything - from crowd control to freezing their hands digging for cold sodas for guests.
Just this portion of the multiple-day Soldier Ride raised $40,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
