[ARCHIVED] Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado Recognizes “Speed to Feed” for Successful Fundraiser Event

During a Special Presentation at the August City of Homestead Council Meeting, Councilman Elvis R. Maldonado recognized the organizers and sponsors of the Chrome Knights Motorcycle Association “Speed to Feed” event, which raised $95,000 to feed about 500 underprivileged children every weekend for one year.

The “Speed to Feed” event, which was organized by the Chrome Knights Motorcycle Association, along with Christ Fellowship Church, and other local churches and community organizations included a fundraiser for the cause as well as a food, backpack and school supply distribution to children in need. Councilman Maldonado served the event as a liaison by reaching out to various City of Homestead schools and children in need who benefited from the donations. Children and their families were also able to enjoy a fun free event with music, food, vendors, stunt fighters and show bikes.

“Every day, in our community, hundreds of children go to bed hungry because their families are going through stressful economic times. It is an honor to recognize the tremendous effort that these organizations have done to help prevent this from happening. Our children are the future and we must make sure they have the supplies and the energy to study and grow as strong members of our community,” said Councilman Maldonado, Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee, who awarded the “Speed to Feed” certificates of appreciation to the Chrome Knights Motorcycle Association, Jenny Love Music, La Clave Tropical, South Florida DJ Association, Darren Frankenberger, Urban Ronin Stunt Team, Christ Fellowship Church, and the Dream Vision Foundation.
