The Non-Profit Organization Partners with St. Petersburg Police Department and Various Local Businesses to Raise Awareness and Donations for Local Charities in Need: Learning Empowered and ALPHA House
Tampa Bay, FLA (December 1st, 2022) – The St. Pete Fools, a local social club of businessmen and entrepreneurs, is hosting a charity ride to raise funds for Learning Empowered and ALPHA House. The ride is on December 10th at 12:00pm. Participants will meet at OCC Road House.
The members of the St. Pete Fools along with local residents and community members will ride throughout the St. Petersburg area, including over the Skyway bridge with stops at local businesses. The ride will be escorted by the St. Petersburg Police Department to ensure a safe, continuous, and expeditious procession of riders. There will be motorcycles, commemorative t-shirts for sale, a 50/50 raffle, and an after-party celebration at The OCC Road House.
“We are delighted and honored to be the host venue for the St Pete Fools Charity Ride. This is a great organization doing fantastic things for our community. We encourage everyone to support their efforts,” said Keith Overton, President & CEO of The OCC Road House.
The public can register to participate for $15 per person. The proceeds from the charity ride will benefit the charities through tangible donations.
Terri Costello, Director of Development at Learning Empowered said “we are truly in need of exposure and the financial resources to continue accomplishing our mission,” when asked about how the St. Pete Fools are helping. “There is a need in our community to build a brighter future for our children. Our school readiness program helps educate our children, as well as provide ongoing resources for their families. Additionally, we help individuals become citizens and improve their english.” If members of the public would like to support the charity in other ways they can “volunteer within our three early childhood centers, in a variety of ways, and support us financially as well.”
Last year the group had 200 bikers participate and raised over $30,000 that went to local charities; ALPHA House, The Kind Mouse, and Daystar Life Center.
