“What’s the total?”
Pete Van Nuys, Executive Director of the Orange County Bicycle Coalition kept asking, but we won’t know until tomorrow.
Attendance was excellent for this first of its kind auction fundraiser. About 125 preregistered. There were 60 items at auction or raffle; we had a live auctioneer, too. April Morris and Joan Littauer did much of the work; Malcolm Hill and I were mostly just sounding boards for this dynamic duo.
Of course, the auction was all about raising money for the Bike Safety Improvement Fund the City established and every dollar raised is matched 3:1.
