ABOUT "THIS IS FOR THE KIDS, INC.
The Homestead Rock'n Rib Fest was started to help raise money for our favorite local charity organizations that focus on children.  "THIS IS FOR THE KIDS, INC" is a Florida 501 C 3 tax exempt Not For Profit Corporation.  We are a group of individuals that care tremendously about our community and the children that live here.   Each year we will hold the Homestead Rock'n Rib Fest and donate all proceeds to other 501 C 3 charitys' that specifically help children and their families.  This is designed to be a community event with many opportunities for charity's to earn even more money by participating with the event. We are always looking for volunteers, for more information contact Larry Roth at 305-979-8424 or LarryRoth@Keyes.com
