Slay Rides Fundraiser to Support 2 Nonprofits

Slay Rides Fundraiser to Support 2 Nonprofits

By Jackie Holfelder

It’s going to be a “wheel-y” Merry Christmas for Catch the Wave of Hope (CWH), thanks to the family-friendly fundraiser that CTM Customs will be presenting at Treasure Coast Square Mall on December 11.

“Slay Rides” kicks off at 6 p.m. with every type of custom vehicle from all over Florida on display. Enjoy food trucks, vendors, raffles, music and great activities.

Plans are in the works to do a toy drive, too.

Slay Rides is being sponsored by Matt Okerson and CTM Customs, an automotive customization shop located in Stuart.

Okerson was so enthused with the success of the Lifted & Twisted fundraiser he sponsored in August, that he’s ready to celebrate the holidays by supporting Catch the Wave of Hope and Operation 300.

CWH is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit working locally to prevent sex trafficking of children through awareness, education, restoration and legislation.


Its vision is to be an empowering voice and defender of these children and it is the only organization on the Treasure Coast with the sole purpose of working to combat this important issue.


Operation 300, which has been providing mentorship to children of the fallen, honoring the sacrifice of those who've given their all for our freedom, and promoting patriotism and service on the Treasure Coast since 2012, is the other nonprofit that will benefit.


The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the old Sears parking lot at the Mall.
