The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will hold its second annual “Turkey Toy Ride” benefiting the Kids Cancer Foundation on Saturday, Nov. 23.
Stan Ellsworth of the popular series “American Ride” and “History and the Highway” will be the guest of honor and lead the brigade. He will address and rally the group as they assemble for this great cause. Last year, this event brought in 100 riders and 400 spectators waiting to meet the “American Ride” star.
Any riders from the region are encouraged to join at 10 a.m. at the Boca Raton LDS chapel at 1530 West Camino Real. The caravan will begin at 11 a.m. and conclude at the Kids Cancer Foundation headquarters at 246 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. Food trucks and “our little warriors” will greet the riders and attendees as they arrive.
“There is a joy and a freedom associated with riding that goes hand in hand with our church’s celebration of religious freedom,” said Andy Lustig, president of the Boynton Beach Stake of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. “Bringing toys for the sick and the afflicted will be a great way to kick off this holiday season.”
