Amidst all of the difficulty and pain of a well-publicized criminal trial, comes this beautiful benefit.
"Ride For Justice" was held this Sunday in honor of Jennifer, Hayley and Michaela Petit, each of whom "never had a bad thought in their heads, nor their hearts" according to husband and father William Petit Jr. who spear-headed the day's events.
The event raised 60,000 for The Petit Family Foundation http://petitfamilyfoundation.org/
a non-profit formed by Bill Petit shortly after the crimes. The foundation helps victims of violent crime, people suffering with chronic illness and several other deserving charitable endeavors.
It was a perfect infusion of positive energy, with such a colorful display of unwavering support, indeed love,to the Petit and Hawke families, from the people in the community as well as all corners of the state.
