The June 24 event was held in honor of beloved client Kellianne Burke, who passed away in October 2021 at the age of 33.

An estimated 60 people, including several of Kellianne’s family members, participated in the fundraiser. Motorcyclists met at the East Freetown VFW and then joined the Iron Order Motorcycle Club for a scenic motorcycle ride in loving memory of Kellianne Burke, who benefitted greatly from services she received from The Arc of the South Shore.

A post ride celebration held at the VFW featured live entertainment by Leslie Gage and Friends, a 50/50 raffle, raffle prizes and refreshments.

All ride proceeds benefited The Arc’s mission to empower people with disabilities.

“We cannot say thank you enough to all who came out to honor Kellianne and support The Arc,” said Abigail Parrilla, CEO of The Arc of the South Shore.
