When over 400 motorcycles rode through the streets of
Skippack in honor of slain Spring-Ford High School student Julianne Siller,
organizer C.J. Santangelo hoped to raise enough money to erect a bench in
Roughly $25,000 in donations later, benches have been placed in Siller’s memory at Garfield Avenue on the boardwalk in Wildwood, another in Ocean City, Md. At 5th Street and the Boardwalk, and more are on the way.
The motorcycle ride, which included a stop on the Skippack Trail where Siller's body was found in May, will become an annual event.
“When you do something this big with all of your heart, there will always be things that we can improve on and tweak for next time,” Santangelo said. “So yes! There will be a next time.”
