Who are we?

Blue Tie Ride was founded in 2011 by Raumar Bustamante and Dolly Betancourt who both share a passion for raising funds and awareness for cancer support services and childhood sexual abuse.

To date, Blue Tie Ride has raised $138,000 through various events but most importantly our Blue Tie Ride Motorcycle Charity Poker Run which is held every August.


Motorcycle enthusiasts riding for survivors and their families impacted by cancer & childhood sexual abuse.

100% of our net proceeds go to both Wellspring Chinguacousy and The Gatehouse.


The Gatehouse: is a unique charity that provides supports, resources and advocacy on behalf of those impacted by childhood sexual abuse. Over the past 25 years, The Gatehouse has helped thousands including children, youth and adults who have experienced childhood sexual abuse.
