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.

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.
