Picture Perfect

August 10, 2013, finally came and oh what a day it was!  

All of the planning, collaboration, dedication and hard work made for a picture perfect Inagural Patrick's Pals Benefit Ride in Kennebunkport, Maine.  One hundred-twenty plus motorcycles and several hundred supporters turned out.  They were greeted with amazing weather, great food and entertainment and a silent auction that put on full display the support that this incredible community has shown for Patrick.

Click HERE to see photos from the event.

The volunteers who are "Patrick's Pals" would like to express our heart felt "THANK YOU" to everyone who made this event possible.  Countless businesses and individuals stepped up with time, materials, auction items, venue, food, labor, labor and labor.  This was truly a humbling and inspirational experience for us all.

Patrick's Pals will be back next year to turn this event into a local tradition.  Please check back often for updates about the event for 2014.

A Cut Above: President and Mrs. George H.W. Bush Join Patrick's Pals

President George H.W. Bush and Patrick

Our little guy received some high-powered support this week when President George Bush 41 volunteered to shave his head to show his support for Patrick and Patrick’s Pals.  

Members of his Secret Service detail have also been shaving their heads this week in solidarity.

We cannot thank both President AND Mrs. Bush enough for their generosity and concern!

Inaugural PATRICKS PALS Motorcycle Benefit Run

Riding for the little guy!


Two-year old Patrick is "our" little guy.


For the last several years Kennebunkport has been the seasonal home of little Patrick's mom and dad.  Patrick's dad, Jon, is our dear friend and co-worker from the protective detail of former President George H.W. Bush.


Earlier this spring, Patrick was diagnosed with Leukemia.  While his prognosis is very positive, there will be many years of treatment ahead.


We are doing what we can to show our support and lend a helping hand to this amazing family and worthy cause.


Whether you’re a rider or not, please come out and show your support for Patrick and his family on August 10, in Kennebunkport.
