Welcome to ‘Big Hearts & Backpacks’ – a benefit for Safe Place organized by the Soldiers of Destiny, a scooter club located in Seattle. For the second year in a row, we come together to aid and support Safe Place’s children program and we hope you will join our efforts to make this a benefit to remember!
Safe Place is a program run by Hand in Hand Kids in Everett, WA, who provide a secure place for kids in transition after being removed from their homes. Often times, these children arrive at Safe Place in the middle of the night with their belongings in a black garbage bag and not much else.
Our goal is to collect new, unused backpacks and fill them with school supplies, clothing, and toys to benefit the children at Safe Place. Then on the morning of September 14, 2014 we’ll strap the backpacks to us and ride our scooters to Everett to deliver the donation — and lots of hugs.
Here’s the summary of upcoming events where you can contribute, have tons of fun, and participate for a great cause:
— September 9, 2014 – Beer Authority Fundraiser, 5:00 PM
Bring a new, unused children’s backpack or any children’s school supplies to The Beer Authority in Lake City (Google Maps Link) to benefit Safe Place! While you’re there, take advantage of exclusive beer specials, give some high fives, and go home with great raffle prizes! All proceeds to benefit Safe Place in Everett.
— September 10, 2014 – Chuck’s Hop Shop Fundraiser, 5:00 PM
Join the Soldiers of Destiny for the grand finale at Chuck’s Hop Shop on 85th (Google Maps Link) before the big ride to Safe Place! We’ll have raffle prizes, your last chance at limited edition t-shirts, and maybe even a secret surprise beer (or two) for you to enjoy! All proceeds to benefit Safe Place in Everett.
— September 14, 2014 – The Big Hearts Ride!, 9:00 AM
Anyone is welcome to hop on two wheels and participate in the donation ride to Safe Place. We’ll be meeting at The Boardroom Cafe (Google Maps Link) at 8:30am and departing promptly at 9am for the ride to Everett! And don’t worry, we’ll be back in time for the Seahawks game.
Hope to see you all there. Thank you for your support!
