Fresco Montclair Presents the Mille Miglia Anti-Bullying Car Show Rally

From Maserati to Ferrari to Lamborghini, the biggest names in the luxury car industry assembled at Fresco Italian Eatery’s First Annual Mille Miglia Anti-Bullying Car Show Rally in Montclair, New Jersey.

#HipNJ celebs such as Emmy Award winner Armand Assante and Jersey Boys Broadway star Dominic Scaglione, Jr. were among the 2,000+ spectators that were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime automobile parade of over 40 rides.  

#HipNJ’s Peter Falzo went one-on-one with some of the big players from the event, including Fresco owner Franco Porporino, Jr. about his desire to stop bullying.  Editor-in-Chief of Hudson MOD, Ty Sawyer, talked about how much of a privilege it was to be able to give back to the community in such a “hip” way.

Observers had a chance to further help the cause by purchasing a ‘Stop Hate’ design product.  The designer, Karma for a Cure, gives 10% of the proceeds for whichever cause (in this case, bullying) to the charity it supports.  Founder Margaux Minutolo filled #HipNJ in on the amazing story behind her brand.

Other #HipNJ companies that lent their support included Dieci Uomo Men’s Spa, Wide World Ferrari Maserati and Mille Miglia Italian Auto Club.

Rev up your engines and watch all the fun!

Fundraising with Ferrari’s at George Press Jewlers

During Summer 2013, a select few got a chance to live a dream and drive a Ferrari at George Press Jewelers‘ “Fundraising with Ferraris”, all to support Parkinsons Disease research.

#HipNJ’s Gina Cerniglia got up-close to these magnificent vehicles, and spoke to the people who made it all possible.

This our fourth Ferrari event, and weve chose [to support] Parkinsons because Richard Stein, who is a client of ours, was diagnosed with Parkinsons seven years ago,said Cheryl Press of George Press Jewelers.  We actually let Richard choose which part of the Parkinsons affiliation that he wanted to donate to, and he selected the Unity Walk.

Richard Stein has been living with Parkinsons for the past seven years of his life, and was told five years ago he wont be able to drive, walk or work.  Not only is he still able to do all those things, but is making each day count by embracing life and buying Ferrari’s “in clumps.”  His five (!) models were on glorious display for the droves of supporters.  

According to the Parkinsons Disease Foundation, as many as one million people in the U.S. are living with Parkinsons.
