Artist Ben Moon Custom Painted This Collector’s Car to Raise Money for Wounded Warriors

Montauk, NY - July 16, 2014 - Mixed media artist Ben Moon was selected to paint his signature white and black designs onto the exterior of a 1985 Rolls Royce “silver spur.” The car made its debut at the “mash - up society” event just last week in east hampton. The car will make an appearance at the soldier ride this Saturday, July 19th, beginning at 551 Montauk Highway at 8:30 am. The soldier ride aims to use cycling and the bonds of service to overcome physical, mental or emotional wounds. Saturday’s solider ride is dedicated to lance corporal Jordan C. Haerter, who was killed in action in Iraq at the age of 19.
 
The car, owned by New York collector Frank Marzano, has been prepped with special paint known as “plastic dip” leaving the original paint untouched.  The car will be making several appearances throughout the summer to generate buzz and attract bidders. It will be auctioned at the end of the summer to the highest bidder, with 100% of proceeds going to the Wounded Warriors Charity.
 
Ben Moon and the renowned artist William Quigley, known as “The Pleasurists,” collaborated with local businesses in the Hamptons, including Chris Carney, Peter Honkerkamp and Nick Kraus, owners of talkhouse and founders of the Warrior Founders, and Blueparrot and Casamigos tequila, to support the Wounded Warriors Charity’s Solider Ride with the “Sip to the Soldeirs” campaign. A portion of sales from july 11-19th of Skrapper Style tshirts, Ben Moon merchandise and Quigley Prints, and Casamigos tequila cocktails will be donated to the solider ride.
