Our Sweet 16 Anniversary party was a great success thanks to our many supporters! On October 20th, over 200 guests celebrated with us at Lagunitas Brewery enjoying good company, delicious beer and food, and great music courtesy of Environmental Encroachment. The event raised around $8,000 which will help us continue our mission of donating bikes to those in need. Thank you to everyone who attended the event!
