Winterfest 2002: A Big Boisterous Benefit

The bike event of the season-perhaps of the year-took place on Sunday, December 8, 2002, when over 800 bike folk came together for the SFBC's Winterfest 2002! SFBC members packed the SomArts Center, enjoying free food and drink, a fabulous art exhibit, and performances by Pinkman, the Cantankerous Lollies, Hot Pink Feathers, Pippi Lovestocking, and Roky Roulette. Our huge live and silent auctions raised $30,000 in support of the SFBC's bicycle advocacy efforts, while giving members great deals on treasures of all kinds, from bikes and bike gear to dinners, cultural events, art, and more!

A huge thanks go the many, many people who made this event possible: our fabulous donors, listed below, our outstanding and hardworking volunteers (over 130 people helped put on this party!) and all the artists who donated original artwork to support the SFBC.

Thank you to our generous donors (this is a partial list - thanks to ALL our generous donors, and to our fantastic volunteers!)
