Integrity House to Benefit from 2nd Annual Mille Miglia Car Show Rally

Proceeds to Benefit the Bate Program, a Substance Abuse Treatment Program for Adolescent Boys

MONTCLAIR — Fresco Da Franco will host the second annual Mille Miglia Auto Club car show rally, benefiting  the Bate Adolescent Program at Integrity House, on Sunday, July 12. The car rally was originally scheduled for June 28, but was postponed due to weather conditions. Following the success of their client-created “Boys of Bate” film, the nationally recognized non-profit substance abuse rehabilitation center will be receiving a portion of the rally’s proceeds.

Taking place at Fresco, located at 15 Church Street, the event will commence with registration at 10:30 a.m., followed by a four mile police-escorted rally showcasing Italian exotic cars. Robert Budsock, President and CEO of Integrity House, will speak at the Meet and Greet Brunch along with members from the cast of the Sopranos at noon. Client testimonials from individuals who are currently enrolled in Integrity House’s program will follow, and the event will wrap up with a special celebrity performance.

“The car rally will help us bring much-needed awareness to the disease of addiction and the effects it has on individuals of all ages, while helping us to raise funds that allow us to provide the services and programming needed to aid individuals that are on the path to recovery,” said Budsock. “We are excited to participate in the event and thankful for the ongoing support from local community leaders and businesses, such as Fresco restaurant and the Mille Miglia Auto Club, who support our mission of helping our clients get back on track toward a successful path of sustained recovery.”

Integrity House’s Bate Adolescent Program is a residential program that serves adolescent males between the ages of 13 and 18 who have substance abuse and co-occurring mental health and behavioral issues. By attending and participating in the car rally, you are helping Integrity House to expand and enrich the services it offers for its adolescent clients.
