ITAM's Vinnie's Run set for April 23
“VINNIE’S RUN” Presented by the Italian American War Veterans
SATURDAY- April 23rd 2011 Rain Date: Sat April 30th
The Italian American War Veterans is a federally chartered
non-profit veteran’s organization that was started after WWII. Part
of our mission statement is: 1. To aid and assist veterans and their
families. 2. To assist public and private agencies and institutions
endeavoring to promote the public welfare.
On April 23rd, our post in East Boston will be holding a motorcycle
bike rally. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for one of
Massachusetts’s most severely wounded veterans. Cpl Vincent Mannion
of Hyannis, Ma, was in a coma for over a year after surviving a
booby trap in Iraq. In result, this soldier has an eighth of his
brain missing and a pump installed into his stomach.
Our event known as “Vinnie’s Run” will consist of a motorcycle rally
followed by a large BBQ. All proceeds will go to housing
modifications for Vinnie and other veterans with brain injuries. All
of our sponsors will also have the choice of advertising room on the
back of the event’s main t-shirts.
