Working Bikes 17th Anniversary Fundraiser


Working Bikes is turning 17 this year! Join us in celebrating our birthday on Tuesday, October 25th from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Lagunitas Taproom. There’ll be food, music, and libations!

We’re dedicated to recycling previously owned bikes and using them as a vehicle for empowerment in global and local communities. Since 1999, we’ve donated over 50,000 bikes to people in Africa, Latin America, and Chicago. The bikes we provide can be life-changing for those who need it the most by improving their mobility and access to education, employment, healthcare, and other basic necessities.

Admission is $35, which includes food and entertainment. There’ll be a silent auction and raffle. Tickets can be purchased here.

Drinks will be sold for $5 each at Lagunitas Taproom. You must be 21 or older to attend.

100% of the proceeds from the event will go towards supporting Working Bikes global and local donation programs.

Food will be provided by Sinha Elegant Brazilian Cuisine, Ignotz Ristorante, Chicago Diner, and the Original Rainbow Cone.

Music by DJ Itzi Nallah from CumbiaSazo!
