Bike Works completed its sixth annual nonprofit auction March 15. This was my second year helping with the event.
In 2006, I was the auction chair – overseeing an 88% increase in revenues. In 2007, my friend Kendall Williams was the auction chair. This year, Duy Tran, Bike Works’ president, chaired the event; I managed procurement and worked with Duy to increase revenues.
This year’s fundraising event grossed an all-time high of over $70,000, a 25% increase over 2007 – another record-breaker. A record 225 attendees showed up at UW’s Gould Hall to support Bike Works youth programs.
