Linda Bickel Grassi, raised in Wildwood Crest and a graduate of  Wildwood High School, was a Glenwood Avenue Elementary School teacher in Wildwood, NJ for 20 years. She was fondly known to everyone as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. 

When diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Linda’s close friends and co-workers came together to raise funds to help defray the enormous costs of her treatment and the ancillary expenses.  

Even though Linda lost her battle with cancer in May of 1994 at the age of 46, the work and the love continue through the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Inc.  Visit the About Us section to find out more.

THANK YOU Black Sheep Motorcycle Club!!!

Never underestimate the difference you can make by donating, volunteering or supporting a cause! The Black Sheep Motorcycle Club has raised close to $60,000 for Love of Linda over the past 14 years!!! Its members go above and beyond every year to organize a fabulous beef 'n beer for Love of Linda. These individuals are truly selfless and ask for nothing in return. Love of Linda can’t begin to thank them enough. In addition, thank you to all of the businesses/individuals that donate auction items, the other motorcycle clubs that attend and everyone who buys a ticket/attends each year. And be sure to save the date for this year’s beef ‘n beer on Sunday, October 6th from 12-5pm at the Shamrock Beef & Ale in Wildwood! We love you Black Sheep!
