Mixed media artist Ben Moon custom painted a 1985 collector's Rolls Royce called "silver spur" with his signature black and white designs to raise money for the Wounded Warriors. This particular car is owned by the New York collector, Frank Marzano, and made its debut at the "Mash-up Society," event last week in East Hampton. The vehicle will also appear at the Soldier Ride event, which will be held on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at the Ocean View Farm at 8:30 a.m.

The Soldier Ride event aspires to use cycling, and the bonds of service to overcome physical, mental and emotional wounds caused by war. The Soldier Ride this Saturday is dedicated to Lance Corporal, Jordan C. Haerter, who was killed in action at age 19 in Iraq.

The car was primed with a special paint called, "plastic dip," that leaves the original paint job on the car unscathed. It will be appearing throughout the summer season to create a stir and attract potential bidders. The Rolls Royce will be auctioned at the end of the summer to the highest bidder, and one hundred percent of the proceeds will go to the Wounded Warriors Charity.

Ben Moon and the renowned artist, William Quigley, the pair known as, "The Pleasurists," worked in partnership with local businesses in the Hamptons that included, Chris Carney, Peter Honerkamp and Nick Kraus, the owners of The Stephen Talkhouse and founders of the Warrior Founders and Blueparrot and Casamigos Tequila to support the Wounded Warriors Charity's Soldier Ride with the "Sip to the Soldiers," campaign. Some of the sales from July 11th to the 19th from SkrapperStyle Tshirts, Ben Moon merchandise, Quigley prints will be donated to the Soldier Ride.

Ocean View Farm is located at 551 Montauk Highway in Amagansett. For more information about Soldier Ride in the Hamptons, visit www.woundedwarriorproject.org.
