Ride for Sal Carbone takes place Saturday at Juan Murphy's in Poughkeepsie.

It was reported last month by Hudson Valley Post that Sal Carbone of Hyde Park, the owner of Marino's Barber Shop in Poughkeepsie, was injured in a "terrible motorcycle accident" after being hit by an alleged drunk driver in Dutchess County. Carbone is still on the road to recovery and a GoFundMe has reached just over $20,000 of the $25,000 goal.

Hudson Valley Biker Network is hosting a special fundraising bike run that will take place this weekend to try and raise additional funds for the Carbone family.
