Listen up Brothers and Sisters! Sherri needs our support and the community’s help.
Since early 2022, she has been dealing with serious health issues. Sherri has and is still receiving numerous medical treatments and procedures focused on MS (Multiple Sclerosis) and Spinal Stenosis. This continued medical care and multiple tests/procedures will continue in the near future for additional diagnosis and possible surgery on the horizon.
Unfortunately, these health issues have caused her to stop working since last year and she is struggling to make it with daily expenses as well as mounting medical costs. Sherri has always been there for others, devoting her own time to helping so many within our community.
Sherri sang her way into our hearts and our community!! Let’s show Sherri, our “Rocker Sister”, the love and support which she has witnessed so many times before as lead singer of “Edge of Red” and “Fade to Grace”, when her bands have donated their personal time playing the music for local Charity Events, our Biker Community and supporting local Veteran’s Organizations.
These bands have taken a page out of Sherri’s book by giving their time and expertise to RAISE money for the BEAUTIFUL and TALENTED Sherri Witmer!

RICHARD’S ROAD 2 RECOVERY
SUNDAY, APRIL 2 at THE NIAGARA TÀP.
ATTENTION all my Brothers and Sisters! Our favorite Brother, Richard J DiFrenna, needs our biker community, the local entertainment industry, as well as, bar and grill establishments, support now more than ever!
I am not sure if you are aware that Richard was diagnosed with diabetes in 2014, and just over a year ago with chronic kidney failure. He was immediately put on a kidney transplant list as getting a kidney was the only way he had a chance at life!
Last November, in the middle of night, he was blessed with a phone call from his doctor stating they had a matched kidney donor for him. Richard and his son, Nico, were off to get him a kidney. Thankfully, his body is doing very well at accepting the transplanted kidney with no rejections.
However, Richard is not well enough to return to work and must wait 8 to 10 months before working again. His son Nico, took a leave of absence from his job to be the caretaker for his father. Nico has recently started working again. However, the living expenses and bills that have piled up are exceptionally high.
Richard has always been there for our community, whether working years at the Porpoise Pub, allowing and/or providing numerous bands their first gigs, and/or hosting poker runs, bike nights, and raising money for charity and fundraiser events; or at Joe’s Off the Beach, and at his own local establishment Richard’s Last Stop Grille & Bar. Allowing bands to get their DRUMS in the door and giving you unconditional support and great opportunities to excel in the entertainment field and/or ensuring every benefit or fundraisers conducted at his establishment was a phenomenal success!
NOW it’s time to come out and make his fundraiser an EXTRAORDINARY EPIC EVENT as we raise money to help him get back on his feet after a kidney transplant in November of 2022. Richard’s recovery is between 8 months to a year, and that is a long time to be unemployed. This benefit will help with his day to day living expenses and necessities!
