The Carrboro Bicycle Coalition is hosting their first-ever fundraiser this Friday at Johnny’s in Carrboro. Along with live music and great food, they will be raffling off some great prizes–including a couple from yours truly at Cycle 9!
From the Coalition’s website:
“The Carrboro Bicycle Coalition will be holding our first ever Fundraiser on Friday, April 15 at Johnny’s (901 W. Main St.) 5 pm–10 pm
Anyone excited about cycling and having a great time with friends is encouraged to attend! This energy-packed event will include live music from two local bands, catered food, locally-produced baked goods, bike-blended smoothies, and a raffle for various prizes and certificates from local retailers.
Proceeds from the event will go toward planning and holding cycling events throughout the Carrboro-Chapel Hill area that enhance the safety and appeal of cycling for all ages and abilities. We recently helped sponsor the Silver Level Bicycle Friendly City award ceremony and a Bike Safety Rodeo held at Carrboro Elementary. A $5 suggested donation earns you a bicycle pin and free raffle ticket! Additional raffle tickets may be purchased for $2 each. You could win a prize from one of several participating merchants, including Fleet Feet, Townsend-Bertram, Back Alley Bikes, the Clean Machine, Carrburitos, and more.
For additional information about the fundraiser, or to volunteer, please contact Seth LaJeunesse at 919-357-6079.”
Those prizes mentioned from us: a bicycle tune-up valued at $70 and a brand new $100 helmet. Come on out and show your support for the local bicycling community, enjoy great music and food, and have a chance to win a prize or two!
Hope to see you Friday!
