A Concert for a Cause: Third Annual MDA Benefit

On Sunday, July 9th, 2017, Trantolo & Trantolo presented the Third Annual MDA Ride & Concert at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. We had a great day, filled with smiles and good memories, from the beginning of the day at three satellite locations to our final destination.

A Successful Day at Mohegan Sun

Due to the growing popularity of our benefit, we changed the concert site to one of the top venues for live entertainment in the country and booked an award-winning country music star to headline the show. Billy Currington was joined on the concert bill by A Thousand Horses and local favorite Arizona Maid Band. The latter group has been part of this event every year!

Along with Co-Presenting Sponsor TSI-Harley Davidson, Title Sponsor Mohegan Sun and Main Sponsors Mike’s Famous Harley Davidson and Brothers’ Harley Davidson, we organized an amazing, fun-filled day to help raise funds for families afflicted by neuromuscular disease.

The day began at the three sponsoring Harley-Davidson dealerships, with early morning refreshments and raffle entries before the riders took off for Mohegan Sun. We are sincerely grateful for the state police troopers who led each ride, so our friends and family could arrive safely at the venue.

Approximately 1,000 bikes arrived at the Winter Parking Lot of Mohegan Sun and it was a great sight to watch. With the trooper’s lights flashing up ahead, each group was excited to pull into the lot, show off their bikes and admire others. Before the show at 2pm, attendees visited sponsor booths.

The musical entertainment kicked off with local favorite Arizona Maid Band, who brought the crowd to life for the next act, A Thousand Horses. They also played a great set that further built the excitement for the main act: Billy Currington.

Vincent Trantolo, spoke of the values that have brought this family success and respect throughout the state at the new office opening.

“Family is everything; make a difference and stand up for something; contribute to the community; and be able to look yourself in the mirror every day,” Vincent shared. This advice that has been passed down to three Trantolo generations and on to our staff members.

The Trantolo family chose Bridgeport as the next Connecticut city to open an office for its diversity and proximity to many existing clients. We are proud to offer a conveniently located office and to fight for the rights of Bridgeport residents who have been harmed by the careless actions of others.

Join the Motorcycle Ride

Police Escorts From the 2016 Ride

If you plan to ride with us to the arena on the day of the concert, we will be leaving from three satellite locations: TSI Harley-Davidson in Ellington, Mike’s Famous Harley-Davidson in New London and Brothers’ Harley-Davidson in Branford. After a scenic ride through Southern Connecticut, riders from the three dealerships will merge about a mile away. From there, our two-wheeled police escorts will lead us to the Winter Parking Lot!

Help Make History

To qualify for the honor of largest one-day motorcycle ride, we must exceed 2,405 riders and travel at least one mile together. The record is currently held by Roberto Macdonald, The RRiders and the Harley Davidson Club Hellas, who led a parade of 2,404 Harley-Davidson motorcycles for 2.8 miles in Greece in 2010.
