Rather than trying to reword the press release, here’s the press release:
Swobo is pleased to take part in organizing a fundraiser for local Portland framebuilder Christopher Igleheart (www.iglebike.com). Recently, Igleheart was hit by a car and fractured his left tibia while riding his bicycle home. In an effort to raise funds for his medical bills, Swobo and other Portland businesses are hosting a fundraiser event at Rapha US headquarters (1915 NW Kearney, Portland, OR 97209) on Friday, November 22, 2013 at 6 pm.
With over 35 companies and countless other individuals offering donations for the event, it’s likely that all in attendance will leave with a general raffle or silent auction item. For a $20 donation at the door, attendees will enjoy refreshments from the infamous Chris King Cafeteria, Widmer Brothers Brewing, and Lange Estate Winery. Additionally, all in attendance will receive one free raffle ticket for the grand prize drawing for the following prizes:
- Breadwinner Cycles custom Continental frame and fork – valued at $2095
- Swobo Folsom and apparel kit – valued at $1002
- Velocity Major Tom Comp wheel set – Valued at $650
For those unable to attend the event in person, a limited run of 150 tickets are available at www.swobo.com/igleheart. All entries will be announced on Friday, November 22, 2013 and there is no limit to online ticket purchases. Need not be present to win.
Additional donations are welcome at www.iheartigle.org.
