Super Bowl weekend is here, and Variety of Georgia – The Children’s Charity is taking the team spirit beyond the football field with a special celebration for children in need! On Saturday, February 1, underprivileged youth from McKendree Elementary School will score 25 bikes, provided by Variety of Georgia, during the Super Bowl Bikes for Kids event. Through generous donations, Variety of Georgia, a non-profit dedicated to enriching, improving and fulfilling the lives of children living with disabilities and disadvantages, is able to keep the Bikes for Kids program alive. The initiative not only provides recreational, therapeutic and transportation opportunities for children in need, but it also offers them the freedom and independence to experience life.
The bike presentation will take place following a FREE movie screening of “The Nut Job” at The Movie Tavern in Suwanee. Participating families will arrive at the theater at 8:00 a.m. to check in for the 8:30 a.m. show with complementary popcorn and a drink. No matter which team these children are pulling for in the big game, this Super Bowl Bikes for Kids event is sure to be a victory for everyone!
