A motorcycle ride for the ‘Rev.’

According to Monroe Patch, a bike ride benefiting the daughter of a late firefighter ended at Lake Zoar Drive-In in Monroe.

The event took place on  a drizzly Sunday in Monroe. Rows of bikes were parked outside the Lake Zoar Drive-In on Route 34 and men wearing Red Knights jackets listened to live music. The motorcycle riding association of firefighters had just completed an 80-mile ride to benefit the daughter of the late firefighter Jimmy “Rev.” Bonazzo of Trumbull, who lost his battle with cancer last September.

The goal of is to raise money for Bonazzo’s daughter, Neve, 13, to go to college when she’s older.

The Red Knights often raise money for charity and have held events for St. Jude Children’s Hospital and Spooner House.

23 Red Knights ride a motorcycle in the rain last Sunday, each making a donation to participate. Shirley, Bonazzo’s wife of 13 years, and Neve greeted the Red Knights at Lake Zoar Drive-In after the ride.
