team support was outstanding
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Cocoa Tiger Youth Football and Cheerleading Association teamed up with Cocoa Motorcycle Riders Club, Inc. Saturday for their first annual motorcycle and car wash.
The car wash was held at the Dixon Diner in Cocoa and began at 8 a.m.
The team support was outstanding,” said Cocoa Tiger Pop Warner League President Todd Bamford. “Parents, players and families came out to help; I was pleased with the tremendous effort everyone put in.”
“It has been non-stop since we started,” said Rick Scott, Tiger equipment manager. “The turnout has been better than any other car wash the Tigers have had.”
From the beginning, traffic was consistent as non-stop water, suds and sponges were enthusiastically being cast upon the cars by the cheerleaders and players of Cocoa Pop Warner.
“The team support was outstanding,” said Cocoa Tiger Pop Warner League President Todd Bamford. “Parents, players and families came out to help; I was pleased with the tremendous effort everyone put in.”
Each division of cheerleaders and football players had an assigned time to attend and wash cars. Many participants stayed the whole time due to the fact that they were having such a good time. The Dixon Dinner was open for everyone to get out of the heat and grab a bite to eat.
On one side of the diner, Kathy Moore founder of the Motorcycle Riders Club had a table set up.
“We do our best to support local groups in the community like Pop Warner,” said Moore.
RAV (Riding Against Violence) is a program designed to raise awareness and provide safety education to the community. They are trying to help young people learn how to stand up against violence and what to do if an incident occurs.

“We are a non-profit organization, it is so important to educate these young people, in hopes to create a safe community,” Moore added.
CITY LEADERS SUPPORT THE EFFORT
Among the many people in the community who gave a $5 donation to have their car washed was the Cocoa Mayor Henry Parrish who seemed to enjoy the positive attitudes from all the kids.
“Overall everything went better than I could have ever expected,” said Bamford. “All the cars were suitably cleaned, I think everyone was pleased. I look forward to doing this again.”
The Cocoa Pop Warner cheerleaders and players travel to Deland next Saturday to kick off their season.
