To the editor:

The Chrome Divas of Cape Coral/Ft. Myers, who are a local women riding group that plan and participate in many fund-raising events to make a difference in peoples lives, are making preparations for a charity fund-raiser for Cape Coral Bootstrap Homeless Ministry. This event will be held Sunday, April 1, beginning at Gators on Hancock Bridge Parkway in Cape Coral, that register all for the Mystery Ride to find clues to the final destination, which will be at Victory Lane on Hancock.

Proceeds from this event will go to Cape Coral Bootstrap Homeless Ministry which is a 501c-3 non-profit charitable organization providing meals and other services to homeless individuals and families, and others in need, in Cape Coral and North Fort Myers. They have been serving our local community for four years. Every Monday, they offer a meal and other services to our guests, including first aid from a nurse, food and beverage to go, donated used clothing, free haircuts, assistance getting to medical appointments and job interviews and referrals to outside agencies. They provide supplies such as toiletries, tents, batteries for lanterns, shoes and boots, etc. Finally, after the meal each week, they offer a prayer service for those who desire to participate. They also provide help for those transitioning from the street into permanent housing by collecting and delivering donated furniture and household goods.

You may donate a gift basket for our raffle, or you may wish to become a sponsor. Sponsorship is very affordable at the Platinum level- $500, Gold level $400, Silver level $300, Bronze level $200 and Leather level $100. Each of these sponsorship levels will offer you advertisement and recognition at our event, and your donation will be tax deductible and sincerely appreciated for making a difference in peoples lives. Your contribution to Cape Coral Bootstrap Homeless Ministry will allow them to continue providing necessary meals and services to our homeless neighbors and others in need in our local community. Please assist us in helping local families and individuals to get through difficult economic times.
