SHOUT OUT: Hackensack PBA Local 9 is hosting an all-day country festival — with music, rides, monster trucks and a live professional bull-riding competition — to help raise money to research and treat autism.
“Cowboy Up for Autism Speaks,” at Foschini Park on Saturday, Aug. 24, will also feature a car show, water rides, raffles, a chili cook-off and lots of other food, as well as an end-of-the-night fireworks show.
94.7 NASH FM’s “Street Team” will be there, as well.
The idea was generated by Detective Keith Marrano, an amateur bull rider, with support from the local.
“Autism is something that affects many officers’ families everyone,” Hackensack Detective John Mora told CLIFFVIEW PILOT . “Events like these help raise awareness as well as money.”
