Mark Your Calendars: August 9th Night of Streetfilms to Benefit Shay Sanchez

1:22 PM PDT on July 30, 2012

On Thursday, August 9th, join us for a night of Streetfilms, tacos and good company as we raise funds for the Kick Butt and Get Better Fund to benefit our friend Shay Sanchez at the Flying Pigeon Bike Shop (3304 N Figueroa Street.) The event is brought to you by L.A. Streetsblog and Bike Nation. All proceeds from the door, t-shirts, food and raffle will benefit the fund.

What a team.

Flying Pigeon has always been the home for Streetsblog’s Eastside fundraiser, but thanks to the contribution of Bike Nation we can afford for this year’s fundraiser to go to a different and very important cause.

If you don’t know Shay, you can read here about how her battle with Lupus Vasculitis has taken its toll on the body of one of the Los Angeles bike community’s leading lights.

Through it all, the founding CICLista has managed to keep helping people, using her struggle to bring more attention to Lupus Vasculitis.

We’re not having a suggested donation for the event (unless you want food, more on that later), but this is for the best of causes. One of our friend’s is sick and could use our help. She would do the same (and more) for us.

If you can’t make it, you can donate directly, right here:

This is the second stop on our “Eastside Tour.” The Tour is sponsored by Bike Nation, The Robert Group, Miceli Infrastructure Consulting, Civic Enterprise and Occidental College’s Urban and Environmental Policy Institute.
