    There's the Livestrong Challenge Philadelphia in August. I've done this ride 5 times. It's a great ride in a beautiful (hilly) area.

    There's this ride in Gettysburg, which is also a beautiful place to ride:

    Search online for Tour de Cure and Bike MS -- they probably have rides in your area.

    Also try asking at your LBS. And local cycling clubs might have information about local charity rides. One of the clubs I belong to posts a schedule of cycling events every year, which includes charity rides as well as club centuries and other events in the area.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    My family and I enjoy this one. http://www.carolforheart.org/cfh/events-GWG.ashx Some of the same hills as Livestrong, which we've done the last 6 yrs and will be there again this year. Girls with Gears is much smaller, in numbers and the scale of the event. But it's a lovely ride and a good cause, with no minimum fundraising levels.
    You too can help me fight cancer, and get a lovely cookbook for your very own! My team's cookbook is for sale Click here to order. Proceeds go to our team's fundraising for the Philly Livestrong Challenge!

    This group covers a lot of events in the PA/NY/NJ areas, also into the mid-Atlantic states. Maybe you'll get some ideas here.
