Thanks to everyone who came out to support San Francisco Bicycle Coalition‘s 16th Annual Winterfest Member Party & Fundraiser on Sunday! The event took place at City View at the METREON, and brought together around 1,500 enthusiasts from San Francisco’s vibrant biking community to celebrate a festive evening full of activities, including a live and silent auction, a 50 piece local art auction, bike sale, and our Orange Photography Winterfest smashBOOTH (tag your photo & friends on Facebook here!).
Attendees bid on 169 unique & local auction items, with every dollar spent going toward making our city of San Francisco safer for biking. A few notable auction items included local art by Dave Eggers of McSweeney’s & 826 Valencia, a ticket to next year’s Burning Man, and a progressive dinner for you & guest at Laconda, Foreign Cinema & Bar Tartine with Tablehopper’s local bike-riding freelance food writer Marcia Gagliardi, including a signed copy of her book. There were also gift certificates to some of San Francisco’s most delicious local restaurants, establishments (Nopalito, Zuni Cafe, The Alembic, Slow Club) and vendors (Blue Bottle, Four Barrel, and Philz Coffee, Bi-Rite Market & Creamery) to name some.
