Another interesting article which I found on the web..
Egged on by the crowd, which grew larger with every turn he took, Richie Sambora marched into a packed cafeteria at Woodbridge High School today and called out something every kid dreams of saying.
Woodbridge welcomed home Bon Jovi’s lead guitarist, Richie Sambora, in style, as officials named a street in his honor.
The honor was prompted by Sambora’s efforts to raise money for Township teen Kelly Mahon, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor two years ago. Since then, Sambora has donated his own money and encouraged others to, even wearing a “CareForKelly.com” t-shirt during a show. He helped pay for major renovations to her family’s home in Fords, making it possible for her to stay there.
Sambora, 50, is raising money through a fundraising effort called,”You Can Go Home.” The rocker also paid for a new weight room at his alma mater,Woodbridge High School.
It’s being named in honor of Sambora’s father, Adam, who died of cancer in 2007. The street leading to Woodbridge High, off Route 35, is now Richie Sambora Way.
