Many of the World's top cyclists including seven-time Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong have generously donated signed prizes for the upcoming charity fundraising event "an evening of champions" with Eddy and Axel Merckx in Vancouver, BC on October 28, 2005. ´The 'cannibal' himself, George Hincapie, Bobby Julich and Bradley McGee have all agreed to support the fundraiser with gifts.
"We are delighted with the response from the world of cycling both in donations and support for this once in a lifetime opportunity" explains Philip Meyer, General Manager of the Wedgewood Hotel and a director of the Wedgewood Cycling Team, hosts of the event." We have already far exceeded our expectations and with these extra great gifts will ensure an evening of champions we will be able to make a significant contribution to the BC Cancer Foundation," Meyer continued.
A limited number of tickets for the reception and dinner are still available at www.teamwedgewood.com and raffle tickets will be on sale on September 14.
