The charitable organization known as L.iF.E. and Kidz is sponsoring their first annual "Roar and Soar" motorcycle poker run on Saturday, November 10, 2007. Proceeds from this event go to benefit families of Polk County's Future Fallen Heroes within public safety, to include law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services, and the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch.
The motorcycle poker run begins at the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranch on Hwy 60 East in Bartow and ends at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City. Admission into Fantasy of Flight Roar and Soar Air, Land, and Sea Festival includes live music, prizes, and drawings. Registration costs $25.00 per rider and $10.00 per passenger.
Registration at the event runs from 7:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The last bike will be out of the starting point by 10:00 and inside Fantasy of Flight by 1:00 PM. You can get a copy of the registration form at www.lifeandkidz.com.
The Lakeland Police Department endorses this fundraising effort for our county-wide fallen heroes within public safety. If you enjoy participating in motorcycle poker runs, this is a fun event that benefits a worthy cause.
