This Thursday: L.A. Streetsblog Eastside Tour to Benefit the Shay’s Kick Butt & Get Better Fund

The wonderful folks at  L.A. Streetsblog are hosting a great evening of  enlightening film, tasty food and fresh fun to benefit my ongoing fundraising campaign, Shay’s Kick Butt and Get Better Fund, which helps offset my ever-growing medical costs. Thanks to all who are donating their precious time, space and moolah to help make this happen.

Event Details from the L.A. Streetsblog  site:

A Night of Streetfilms to Benefit Shay Sanchez at Flying Pigeon L.A.

by Damien Newton

August 9, 2012   6:30 pm   

(RSVP on Facebook!)

On Thursday, August 9th, join us for a night of Streetfilms, Tacos and good company as we raise funds for the Kick Butt and Get Better Fund to benefit our friend Shay Sanchez. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Fund. The event is brought to you by L.A. Streetsblog and Bike Nation.

Flying Pigeon has always been the home for Streetsblog’s Eastside fundraiser, but thanks to the contribution of Bike Nation we can afford for this year’s fundraiser to go to a different and very important cause.

If you don’t know Shay, you can read here about how her battle with Lupus Vasculitis has taken its toll on the body of one of the Los Angeles bike community’s leading lights.

Through it all, the founding CICLista has managed to keep helping people, using her struggle to bring more attention to Lupus Vasculitis.

We’re not having a suggested donation for the event (unless you want food, more on that later), but this is for the best of causes. One of our friend’s is sick and could use our help. She would do the same for us.

If you can’t make it, you can donate directly, right here:

This is the second stop on our “Eastside Tour.” The Tour is sponsored by Bike Nation, The Robert Group, Miceli Infrastructure Consulting, Civic Enterprise and Occidental College’s Urban and Environmental Policy Institute.
