Here’s my rundown of fun stuff in Fort Lauderdale this weekend…
Charlie’s Rise N Ride (Bike Ride)
Meet up is at 7:15am
We leave promptly at 7:30am.
JOIN us for our weekly Charlie’s Rise and Ride. Weekends go better when they start off in the saddle.
We leave from the north east part of Broward? Join us Sat morning at the Duffy’s Diner at the corner of Cypress Creek Rd and Dixie Hwy where we will head to the beach and go north for a round trip ride of approx 30 miles and a nice pace of about 15+ mph. We stay together as a group.
Stay with us after the ride for breakfast. We have a nice place to have a cup of coffee or to grab a bite and to safely store your bike.
Pedals turn at 7:30 AM
Bowling to Fight Hunger (Note: bowling spots all filled. You’re welcome to join & enjoy)
Welcome to the Hunger Fighting Zone. Thank you for your commitment to fighting hunger in our community. By participating in “Bowling to Fight Hunger”, you’re making a direct impact in the lives of youth, women and men living with HIV / AIDS who are not able to buy adequate food and nutrition.
“Bowling to Fight Hunger” is Poverello’s longest running charity event. To date, over 1 million dollars have been raised to fight hunger through our annual bowl-a-thon.
All proceeds from Bowling to Fight Hunger go to help Poverello provide life-saving food and basic life essentials to youth, women, and men living with HIV / AIDS and who are at poverty level and below.
– My goal is $500 so please help donate to this worthy cause herehttps://www.poverello.org/
