Proceeds will benefit The Gary Tiger Balletto Foundation.
New York, NY – The founders of SopranosCon have announced that an exclusive motorcycle featuring autographs from various ‘Sopranos’ cast members will be available for auction at the upcoming SopranosCon, which will take place at the Meadowlands Convention Center on November 23rd and 24th, 2019.
The special edition Harley Davidson 1994 Heritage Softail FLSTN motorcycle features autographs from many cast members of the hit HBO show, including a rare autograph from the late James Gandolfini, who played the iconic Tony Soprano. The autographs, and the motorcycle, have been certified authentic by Steiner Sports Memorabilia; the winner of the auction will receive a certificate of authenticity confirming same.
“We’re thrilled to offer this exclusive motorcycle for auction to devoted ‘Sopranos’ fans,” said Gary Balletto, founder of the Gary Tiger Balletto Foundation, who confirms that only 500 tickets will be available for the raffle. “The show is not only a cultural touchstone for both New Jersey and Italian-Americans, but it’s become a part of the pop culture zeitgeist.”
The Gary Tiger Balletto Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, therapy with adaptive equipment and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information, advocacy and providing services to those who qualify. Operating on the philosophy that “every moment counts,” the Gary Tiger Balletto Foundation is also dedicated to help find a cure for spinal cord injuries.
“I am so excited to assist Gary in all his endeavors,” said Michael Mota, co-founder and co-producer of SopranosCon. “When this opportunity came to me, I couldn’t think of anyone more worthy than the Gary Balletto Foundation. We are looking forward to September 1st where our documentary team will film Gary and discuss how he has become a strong advocate for people with disabilities here in Rhode Island and beyond. He is a true hero!”
Raffle tickets are $100 each, and can be purchased on the official SopranosCon website. Tickets are still available for SopranosCon, as well, and can be purchased at: www.sopranoscom.com
