#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.
