BikeFest: ...And All that Jazz!
Friday, May 11th, 2012
8:00 pm to Midnight
Eastern Market North Hall, Capitol Hill
Not only will BikeFest be a lovely time to spend with friends, and an opportunity to dress up, listen to great music, and dance; BikeFest is WABA's 40th Anniversary Celebration!
BikeFest is also your opportunity to bid on our excellent silent auction line-up, and a chance to win raffle prizes to boot! Our Silent Auction and Raffle includes thousands of dollars worth of incredible bike gear, bike vacations, and bikes. Lots of bikes!
So you know, we are auctioning off 5 custom bikes and 2 brand new bikes, and raffling off 1 brand new bike. Odds are good you could be rolling home on a new set of wheels.
Not convinced? Check out our complete line-up of silent auction packages and raffle prizes.
We're expecting this event to sell out before Friday, so get your tickets today. When they're gone...they're gone.
Tickets are $45 for members ($10 off the regular price)
Use the code "Speakeasy" when registering.
