This Is For The Kids, Inc. is hosting for the seventh consecutive year the Homestead Rock’n’ Food and Craft Beer Fest. It will take place on October 6, from 11 am until 7 pm at Homestead’s Harris Field Pavilion.
The Homestead Rock’n’ Food and Craft Beer Festival, formerly known as the Rock’n’ Rib Fest, started in 2012 as the main fundraising event of This Is For the Kids, Inc. in order to help raise money for local charity organizations that focus on children.
This Is for the Kids, Inc., a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is a fundraising charity that supports other children’s charities in Homestead. The organization was created in 2012 when six individuals came together in an effort to spotlight Homestead and some of its hard-working children’s charities.
“We are a group of individuals that care tremendously about our community and the children that live here. Each year, we hold the Homestead Rock’n’ Food and Craft Beer Fest and donate all proceeds to other 501(c)3 charities that specifically help children and their families,” said Larry Roth, Homestead councilman and the organization’s co-founder.
This year, This Is for The Kids, Inc. will be giving all net proceeds to Friends of the Seminole Theatre, Love and Hope on a Mission, PATCHES PPEC and Noricia Talabert’s Dream Foundation as the charities that will benefit from the event.
“Last year, we gave away more than $20,000 for local children’s charities in Homestead, and to date we have been able to give away just over $100,000,” added Councilman Roth, while giving credit to all sponsors that have collaborated in the event throughout the years by providing sponsorships: “they truly care about this community.”
Councilman Roth grew up in Palmetto Bay. He first came to Homestead in 1990. Going through Hurricane Andrew in 1992, Councilman Roth saw Homestead’s community spirit and fell in love. Since then, he has been serving Homestead’s residents as a private citizen and now as a councilman.
“The event is designed to be a community event in which we get a chance to highlight the best Homestead and South Dade has to offer while raising funds and awareness for local children charities,” concluded Councilman Roth.
The event is packed full of live music, talent, demonstrations, lots of vendors to shop, kids’ fun zone, over 20 craft beers and many food options. $10 entry fee and craft beer sample glass and wristbands available. Free entry for kids ages 10 and under.
