FLORIDA TECH: We are so grateful to the Unchained Kings for helping us educate the autism community
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Brevard County Unchained Kings Motorcycle Club raised $ 12,000 for Florida Tech’s Scott Center for Autism.
Aware that the centre’s largest annual fundraiser, Evening of Hope, was canceled this spring due to the COVID pandemic, Unchained Kings member Tyler Greene hosted an outdoor festival on May 2 at Space Coast Harley -Davidson in Palm Bay.
The event featured live music and entertainment and drew audiences and other motorcycle clubs from across the state and beyond. Vendors sold food and participants bought shirts and other equipment, with all proceeds going to the Center.
The main fundraising was done through a raffle, with the top prize being a home air conditioner provided by JMR Max LLC.
“We have always worked to help children in the community, and knowing how the Scott Center helps children with autism become independent adults is very important to us,” said Greene.
Scott Center staff distributed awareness materials and answered questions at the festival, which also featured Florida Tech’s Formula SAE Club and its student-built Formula car.
At the end of the day, the total raised exceeded $ 12,000.
“We are very grateful to the Unchained Kings, not only for their support, but for helping us educate the community about autism,” said Kim Sloman, director of the Scott Center.
The Unchained Kings said the festival was the first of what they hoped to make an annual event, and members will continue to raise funds both for direct family aid this year and for an endowment to support the Scott Center. in the future.
