Each year on the 3rd Sunday of November, the entire world comes together to honor those that have been affected by road traffic crashes. We are hosting a candlelight vigil and ceremony at the Avalon Park Band Shell this year to raise awareness in the community, and pay our respects the beautiful lives that have been taken in road traffic fatalities.
If you or someone you love has been affected by any type of road traffic incident, we would be honored if you would join us in fellowship on November 18th to remember those that we love dearly. Their lives matter, and your bravery in sharing their legacy and your journey can make a significant impact in our community. Help us raise awareness and embrace one another in unity while we honor the lives that have been victimized. See the photo above for more information about our WDR ceremony, and visit the WDR website for more information about this international event. We hope you will join us.
May 12th was our first official 5K to Launch Awareness! We partnered with the Titusville Police Deparment and the Titusville Police Youth Foundation to host a 5K that took us over the beautiful Max Brewer Bridge in Titusville, FL. over 100 people came out to show their support and walk or run with us to raise awareness about the dangers of drunk, impaired, and distracted driving. Thank you to everyone who came out to join us - we can't wait to see you next year!
From May 7th-10th, Bill had the opportunity to bring the #NoMoreEmptySeats Tour across state lines to Muscle Shoals, Alabama! Over 1,000 students from the local middle and high school were introduced to Keri Anne, and got to hear Bill's presentation about the importance of good decisions. This was the Foundation's first time getting to speak to students outside of the state of Florida, and we could not be more grateful for the tremendous amount of support that we have received!
Our president Bill spoke at the State Conference for Student Government at East River High School in Orlando! Over 2,000 students and 160 teachers and administrators were in attendance. Every year, this conference focuses on communication, community service, & local fundraising to help schools across the state. We were honored to have so many educators and young people from across Florida meet Keri Anne. They have such bright futures, and we know they all share in her mission to #ChangeTheWorld!
We kicked off 2018 with our biggest fundraiser of the year! The Second Annual Dinner Banquet took place at the Live Oak Event Center at UCF. We honored some amazing individuals and organizations in the community that have helped make 2017 so successful for the foundation. We had another amazing silent auction, a surprise raffle, and amazing food from Pickles Catering!
Special thanks to Trooper Steve Montiero for being our MC for the evening, as well as Sherri Claudio for taking amazing photos throughout the night! We'd also like to thank our volunteers from the Timber Creek High School Beta Club, and all of our gracious silent auction donors.
