The pressure is on. As this year’s Dancing With Our PALs event to benefit the Fort Pierce Police Athletic League inches closer, the dance teams are ramping up their rehearsal schedules as well as their efforts to raise much-needed monies that will support PAL programs and projects.
Annette Strothers and her crew of devotees recently joined up with Treasure Coast Harley-Davidson in Stuart and reaped the benefits of their Customer Appreciation Day.
“We host Customer Appreciation events on the third Saturday of every month,” said events coordinator Sarah Naylor. “We try to tie-in a local charity to connect with the community. We try to help kids, veterans, emergency service organizations — the Police Athletic League is a great example!”
TC Harley-Davidson donated the beer and several auction items. High-energy rock band NIXX entertained as the crowd savored free food prepared by the Veteran’s Nation Riding Association. A bikini bike wash and a 50/50 raffle rounded out the afternoon activities.
“Team Annette is doing a fantastic job,” said Paul Pearson, Executive Director of Fort Pierce PAL. “All of the money raised goes to help the kids!”
