Trips for Kids raises $125,000 for 20th anniversary

Trips for Kids (TFK) raised US$125,000 last weekend at its Twentieth Anniversary Gala Dinner and Auction held last weekend. The fundraiser was attended by 200 people, including honorary board members Robin Williams and Gary Fisher.

"The anniversary event was a wonderful tribute to the generosity of hundreds of individual donors, companies, foundations, and members of the cycling industry that have supported us through the years," said Founding Director Marilyn Price, who holds a place in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame for her work with the organization.

"We were excited to see Robin and so many of our long time supporters. Their message to us is always: 'Keep up the good work.' With the money we raised and the support we felt, we are ready to launch Trips for Kids into the next 20 years!"

Marin County and the cities of San Rafael and Mill Valley proclaimed November 3, 2007 as "Trips for Kids" day in recognition of the group's work.
