The public is invited to “Let’s Support our Troops Day,” Saturday April 25 from 1 to 7 p.m. at Harley-Davidson of Fort Myers, 2160 Colonial Boulevard in Fort Myers.
Sponsored by Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, Personal Injury Lawyers, Harley-Davidson and the American Heroes Foundation, the event will honor troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The event is the result of nearly two years of effort by Kaye Caple, a Southwest Florida resident who first started in her quest to support the troops by making holiday ornaments and selling them to raise money to mail needed items to our troops.
To date, the Adopt-A-Troop Foundation has shipped over 625 packages to our service men and women overseas.
The event will include Opening Ceremonies provided by the United States Naval Base at Key West. The United States Army, Marines and Coast Guard will be at the event and will showcase some of their military equipment including a Rockwell and Humvee demonstration.
The Ryan Rust Racing Team will sign autographs and their race car will be on display.
There will also be an on-site walking Poker Run, scavenger hunt and 50/50 raffle.
Participants are invited to come enjoy the vendors, food and music and support a worthwhile cause. All proceeds will go to our service men and women who are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In addition to financial donations, the organization also will accept specific items to help fill the packages. For a list of items, visit www.adoptatroop.net and click on packages.
