We had a great time at the 1st Annual PPFOA Jeep Ride for the Cause! Thanks to EVERYONE who attended, volunteered, and sponsored this event. We could not have made this event successful without you!
Our amazing sponsors:
Warn, 4 Wheel Parts, K&N Filters, Publix of Vilano Beach, United Healthcare Medicare Solutions, Smitty Built, Summit, Survival Straps, Woody’d BBQ of Ponte Vedra, Happy Trails 4×4, UPS, Army Navy Outdoors, Vilano Beach Main Street, Jewel3Fishing, Beaver Street Foods, Matanzas Jeep Club, PettyCo Express, Hair Studio, Jacksonville Chrysler Jeep and Dodge, The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard.
For those of you that couldn’t attend, it was a great day with fair weather. The grass lot behind Woody’s BBQ in Ponte Vedra was full of Jeeps and the 70 Jeep long convoy coming down A1A and onto Vilano Beach was truly a site to see. There were reports of Vilano Beach residents waving American flags from their roof tops. The food on the beach was sizzlin’ and love (bugs) was in the air. It must have taken an hour and a half to go through all of the raffle prizes our sponsors had so generously donated. 1 out of 3 participants received a raffle prize. Towards the end, a rain cloud got loose and cut the event a little short, but I must admit, it added a nice sense of urgency to get everyone and everything off the beach. Afterwards, the beach was so clean, you couldn’t tell we were there.
All in all the event was a success. The PPFOA raised over two-thousand dollars towards our cause. We are truly overwhelmed with the amount of support the charity received. Thanks again to everyone and God Bless.
