About this Event

Engines will roar, on Saturday, August 10, 2019, at 11 am, when Jimmy’s Ride kicks-off from Berkshire County Kids’ Place and Violence Prevention Center at 63 Wendell Ave., Pittsfield, MA, benefiting local victims of child abuse. This annual event is held in memory of Pittsfield native Jimmy Bernardo, who was abducted from a local movie theater on Oct. 20, 1990. A month later, his body was found in Ithaca NY.

Register for the ride in advance at KidsPlaceOnline.org or day of starting at 9:30 a.m. Kick stands go up at 11 a.m. beginning the hour-long ride. Riders will be traveling north on US Route 7, crossing into NY via Routes 43 and 22, back into MA at West Stockbridge, and ending at Camp Russell 341 Boys Club Rd., Richmond, MA. Following will be Jimmy’s After Party, at noon, on Richmond Pond with live music, food trucks, craft beer, tremendous entertainment and best of all- all proceeds benefit local families who have been affected by abuse.

Not a rider? Not a problem. Jimmy’s After Party is open to the public; $5/person or $20/car. Starting at noon, get up and dance to live music by classic rock band Red Handed, followed by singer-songwriter Brian Benlien, and lastly acoustic duo 2 Broke Beth’s. Hungry? Cornucopia is serving farm-to-table fare, and Ozzies will be serving classic American fare. Thirsty? Bright Ideas craft brew is on tap. A portion of purchases benefit the event thanks to these generous partners.

Feeling Lucky? This year’s raffle includes $1,000 cash prize, two Boston Red Sox tickets behind the Sox dugout for a September 3rd evening game against the Minnesota Twins, and a $300 Guido’s Fresh Marketplace gift card. Tickets are $5 each, 3 for $10 or 10 for $20 and available for purchase at Kids’ Place in Pittsfield or can be purchased at Jimmy’s After Party. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win.
