DIX HILLS, NY – In a gesture of community caring, the Suffolk County Police Department and Bikes for America teamed up to give a Dix Hills girl a new set of wheels.
“Highway Patrol Lt. Thomas Paolicelli, along with Second Precinct Community Liaison Officer Claudia Delgado, recently gifted a brand new bicycle to Sara Sikorsky, the nine-year-old sister of Dana Sikorsky, a local child who sustained a serious brain injury after a near-fatal drowning in 2018,” police said today. “The new ride was given to Sara in advance for the upcoming annual Drive For Dana Car & Trunk Show at Miller’s Ale House in Lake Grove on May 15. Three other bikes were donated for the event, as well as other prizes.”
All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to Dana’s rehabilitation from a brain injury she sustained.
