Heartwarming. Inspiring. Moving.
Perhaps Michael A. Bozzuto, CEO of Bozzuto's Inc. and founder of The Dream Ride Experience and The Hometown Foundation, Inc., has said it best: "Dream Ride has become a dream for everybody." In 2001, Dream Ride began simply as an optimistic vision – a passionate hope for the future of those in our community of those living with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Armed with a vivid dream, Michael Bozzuto created The Hometown Foundation, Inc. and established it as the central support system for his goals. Dream Ride came into fruition – its ultimate motive being to shed light on the countless abilities of the intellectually disabled community and highlight their determination in their daily lives.
In 2001, with a humble total of twelve motorcycles revving their engines, a dream took a shape, and The Dream Ride Experience began its movement. Now, more than 20 years later, thanks to the passion, hope and dedication of business partners, community sponsors, and individuals, The Dream Ride Experience has evolved into the largest philanthropic endeavor sponsored by Bozzuto’s Inc., and The Hometown Foundation, Inc. Over the course of the years, thousands have joined the #DreamRide365 movement and have helped make an impact on so many lives. Since its inception, The Dream Ride Experience has donated over $15 million to support The Hometown Foundation, Inc.
