Trips for Kids will host its annual "Brews, Bikes and Bucks" party at the Broken Drum Brewery (1132 Fourth Street, San Rafael, California) on Sunday, December 7, from 2 pm to 6 pm. The popular event will feature local beer, raffle prizes, food and a chance to hobnob with famous mountain biking pioneers.
Now in its 11th year, this fundraiser has become a much-anticipated tradition. Legends likely to attend include Gary Fisher, Tom Ritchey, Joe Breeze, Ned Overend, Scott Nicol, Jacquie Phelan, Otis Guy, Ross Shafer, Charles Kelly, Mert Lawwill and Chris Lang.
"Many of us take for granted the pleasure of getting out in Marin parks and wild areas and enjoying a bike ride. That simple experience isn't available to everyone, though - especially to a number of vulnerable, inner-city kids," said Marilyn Price, Trips for Kids founder. "Our goal has always been to help set that straight a little bit. This fundraiser lends a big hand by supporting our entire program."
Admission is free and all proceeds will benefit Trips for Kids, the award-winning, Marin-based non-profit that has improved the lives of disadvantaged kids through trail rides and earn-a-bike programs for more than 20 years.
