Teacher Appreciation Night To Benefit The “Noah Strong” Effort 6/24/17

Our Ryde 4 Noah

On Thursday morning March 3rd of last year, what started as a normal school day for the 13 year old suddenly turned tragic. During gym class, Noah excused himself to the locker room. While in there, his heart went into an arrhythmia which ultimately led to cardiac arrest. A friend found him unresponsive and contacted his teacher who immediately began CPR. The school nurse and EMTs were summoned to help and administer an AED to get his heart started again. He was rushed to nearby Morristown Medical Center. While the staff provided great care and support to stabilize Noah, they didn’t have the full capability to care for a patient in such a dire situation. That night he was transferred to Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian in NYC and was in the cardiac intensive care (ICU) for almost three weeks.
During his time in the ICU, the medical staff managed and stabilized his organs to prevent further damage from the initial shock from the event. They helped his body recover and during treatment, discovered an extra nerve on his heart which led to his rapid heartbeat or arrhythmia. The doctors conducted a successful ablation procedure on Noah and shortly thereafter he left the ICU. However his fight is not over. The next major hurdle is recovering from the trauma that was caused to Noah’s brain during the cardiac event. We remain hopeful and want to get him to the next phase of his treatment which will be at Children’s Specialized Hospital in New Brunswick. It is expected to be a long road of rehabilitation ahead. We are hopeful that Noah will recover from the trauma so we can hear his voice and see that infectious smile!

Can you see your name???

Rock and Rescue @Mount Holleran Towne Tavern on 12/12/2015

An Evening to benefit 11th Hour Rescue

An Evening to benefit 11th Hour Rescue

A promise was made 2 1/2 years ago to Nick Ferriero. He came to see PMRyder at The Inn Crowd. One look at him and I knew he needed a hug. I asked him what was wrong. It turns out that his dog, Gracie had passed away. He was devastated.
I said to him,”There is someone that I want you to meet.”
I introduced him to my kid Sister, Leslie Garabedian. Leslie rescues and rehabilitates Dobermans. She has a wealth of experience with the reward of love that her pets give to her, as well as the sorrow that their loss brings.
I let them sit for a while, and I approached them with the promise to Nick that together, we would figure out something so that we may never forget Gracie.
That promise became Rock and Rescue!!!
Below, please find the 11th Hour Rescue wish list and the Rock and Rescue flyer.
Copy it!!! Share it!!! Then Shout it from the Mountaintops!!!
***Remember, bring something from the Wish List to be eligible for the raffle prizes that have been donated.

Rock and Rescue on Dec. 6, 2014

On December 6, 2014 PMRyder once again teamed up with our Brother Band, Joe Mama for our Second Annual Rock and Rescue at The Mount Holleran Towne Tavern in Parsippany, NJ.

Summer 2013 @ Kenilworth, NJ
The Music is more than just the sound. The Music is . . .
It was in the Summer of 2013 when we learned of an Inner City High School Physics Teacher that was having difficulty obtaining the necessary funding to replace his lab equipment that was lost due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. At the time PMRyder was a 3-piece band with Paul and George on Guitar and Chris on percussion. We were invited to open up a 4 band bill in early August at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, NJ. The band agreed to make this performance a benefit for and bring awareness to the classroom needs of our Brother, Nick Ferriero.

Along for the Ryde with Emma’s Angels

Many people wonder why PMRyder is always trying to benefit organizations or raise awareness to certain causes. We go Along for the Ryde with these efforts for a number of reasons. First of all, we celebrate life with an open heart and we try to fill your lives with great music in a celebratory environment. Then we also take a look at our good fortune to be able to do what we love, and we recognize those that are not so fortunate, or someone that has done or is doing extraordinary things. Yes, the music is our journey, but the stops along the way allow us to bring all of our Ryders together to share the Love.
The effort and courage of Baby Emma and her Parents has hit very close to the Home of PMRyder and we are determined to make a difference as we go Along for the Ryde with Emma’s Angels at 9:00 on 1/09/2016 at The Mount Holleran Towne Tavern, 450 North Beverwyck Rd in Parsippany, NJ.FullSizeRender-4
