Party ON! October 21st. Specifics Later....

I'm having a party. It's a party first and a fundraiser second. The fundraiser to help me pay for the race across Costa RIca, La Ruta De Los Conquistadors. The fundraiser will be auction style, and don't worry it's not all bike stuff. Local companies are helping me out with gift certificates. Plus 20% of what I raise goes to Neighborhood Bike Works. That is a pretty cool program in Philly that does a lot of bicycle advocacy and after school programs. Check it out in the links to the left.
So far I've got Gift Certs from:
CBOP Camera on 19th and chestnut
The Bakery at the Mills, in East Falls
Picnic, next to Trophy Bikes on Walnut
Massage, from Stago Sports Massage
Intermezzo Cafe, also next to Trophy

And I've just started.
Bike stuff is piling up..
Carbon Cyclo-cross cranks,
Thompson Stem or Post gift cert,
Bontrageur Carbon MTN bar,
105 Brake Calipers
FSA 27.2 carbon Seatpost
FSA 31.8 110mm, -17 k-force stem
Thompson X-4 31.8 110mm stem
IF hat, socks
Dirt Rag Beanie
Wool Tete De Course, short sleeze jersey

I'll also auction off some weird things,
A meal cooked by me, I'm not bad!

I'm not sure where this party is going to be. I wanted to do it at a bowling alley but cost is prohibative. Just plan on Sat October 21st, between 6-9pm, so racers can come and go and others can stay as long as they like. I'll update as information is gathered. Flier invites will be passed out.
