Biking Shorts - August 10, 2012
By Barbara Schmid
Last night’s Eat, Drink and be Charitable event brought around 150 people to Bobarino’s at the B.O.B. for the Social Charity Club of Grand Rapids’ event to benefit GGRBC.
It was a fun evening of socializing, networking and sharing the message about what GGRBC is all about. A steady rain left the bike corral we had set up outside looking rather forlorn, yet the wet weather didn’t keep charitably-minded folks from stopping by to show their support of GGRBC.
Every guest contributed $10, which was donated in full to GGRBC. For their hard-earned bucks, they received a drink coupon, appetizers and a newly-printed GGRBC sticker. We thank the SCC of GR for inviting us into their fold. It’s a great group!
