Community Cycling Center Celebrates 20 Years with Bicycle Ball

Saturday, November 15, 2014

 

Get into the swing of the holiday gala season with the best bikecentric party of the year celebrating the Community Cycling Center's 20th year serving Portland's bike riding community. On Wednesday, November 19th, The Bicycle Ball will provide a grand celebration worthy of breaking out the costume box, one more time this year.

The Bicycle Ball is a fundraiser for the nonprofit, Community Cycling Center (CCC). Celebrating 20 years of broadening access to bicycles, the Cycling Center is hosting this fundraiser to support the next generation of bike riders in Portland.

The theme of the party is inspired by the 1920s décor of The Secret Society, with prohibition-era cocktails sponsored by Dystopia Vodka, a photo booth, and vintage-style live music by the Swingtown Vipers.

“We want to end our 20th anniversary year with a celebration of what’s on the horizon in Portland,” says Mychal Tetteh, CEO of the Community Cycling Center. “With our community’s support, we will shape the future of bicycling and active transportation in the Portland-Metro Region.”

The Community Cycling Center is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994 that helps people access their community by bicycle. CCC partners with communities on neighborhood-based projects and programs, and works to ensure that all Portlanders, regardless of their income, education, or ethnic background, should have the opportunity to choose healthy, active transportation.

During The Bicycle Ball, a silent auction of balance bikes crafted by friends of the Community Cycling Center will be offered to event attendees for bids. Start practicing your Lindy Hop moves now for the Swingtown Vipers, then keep your dancing shoes on for music sponsor XRAY FM, who will spin records to close down the party.

The Bicycle Ball
Wednesday, November 19th, 6:30pm – 10pm
