The American Security Council Foundation held its inaugural 2018 Ride for America Poker Run on April 7, with help from American Legion Post 39 in Vero Beach.

This fundraiser was put together to help support the foundation’s educational program “Step Up America: A Call To Good Citizenship,” which is designed to teach youth how to become responsible and engaged U.S. citizens.

“Step Up America” helps answer questions such as:

What does it mean to be a good citizen? How do you make change within your communities? What is the meaning of freedom and what protects our freedoms? How do our branches of government work? Why should we respect our military and first responders?

Proceeds from this fundraiser are going straight into the development of material for “Step Up America” with part of the proceeds going to American Legion Post 39 for its involvement in this event.
