TurningWheels for Kids Fundraiser at UNWINED Wine Bar & Shop

Turning Wheels for KidsTurningWheels for Kids is a local non-profit organization that provides new, sturdy, and safe bikes and helmets to local children who would otherwise not have their own.

A bike is a rite of passage for a child. Beyond the fun and smiles, a bike provides many benefits such as the lifelong habits of exercise and outdoor activity. TurningWheels for Kids has distributed over 8,000 bikes since 2003, and plans on hitting its annual goal again in 2010.

The TurningWheels fundraiser event is $40 per person, which includes some great wine, food, and desert from local chef Ivan Barnes.

The event is at UNWINED on Sunday, June 6 from 4-7pm. Walk-ins are welcome. The bar and shop will be open for regular business during this event.
