Port Orange, Florida (PRWEB) November 26, 2012
Staffers from the Port Orange-based law firm of Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell will get into the holiday spirit early this year as they kick off a motorcycle run for holiday food on Dec. 1 and offer free food at a popular Christmas parade on Dec. 2.
“We always look forward to these holiday events, but we’re less than two weeks away from them and we need lots of help to collect canned and boxed food for those in need,” said Jessica Eckelbarger, marketing director for the personal-injury firm.
The “2nd Annual Volusia County Grub Run” – an escorted motorcycle tour along scenic Volusia roadways – will begin with registration at 10 a.m. Saturday Dec. 1 in the firm’s parking lot at 640 Dunlawton Ave. and end at the First Turn Steakhouse & Sports Lounge, 5236 S. Ridgewood Ave. in Port Orange. The cost is $10 or the donation of non-perishable food.
The “36th annual Port Orange Christmas Parade” – a two-hour, 1.5-mile-long event with floats, marching bands, horses, fire trucks, dancers, beauty queens and Santa Claus – will begin at 2 p.m. Dec. 2 at Nova Road and Dunlawton Avenue.
Several Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell employees will be on hand at each event by assisting with food collection or riding in the bike run on Saturday, or giving away hot dogs and hamburgers along the parade route on Sunday, Eckelbarger said.
Along with other bike run sponsors – Thunder Roads Magazine and First Turn Steakhouse – Rue, Ziffra & Caldwell is encouraging bikers to sign up early to participate in this year’s event. Highlights will be live bands, raffles, food and giveaways, including $100 prizes for the most pounds of food collected, according to firm partner David Sweat, an avid motorcyclist, who will ride in the Grub Run to help collect food and cash for the Second Harvest Food Bank and the Children’s Home Society.
“For anyone who can’t make it to the Grub Run, we’ll also have donation boxes set up at both of our Port Orange offices at 632 and 640 Dunlawton Avenue,” he said. “We know that people are in need all year long, but, we especially want to make someone’s holidays brighter by donating food for their Thanksgiving dinner.”
