Mark Your Calendars! This year Sip & Swap will be April 26th from 6-9 PM at Jasper Winery.
Pictured above hard at work, the 2023 Sip & Swap Committee met March 8th to discuss details for the team's upcoming event.
Sip & Swap is one Velorosa Cycling Team's truly special events. It's fun, it's social, AND it benefits local charities. If you've never been be assured you don't want to miss this!
Plan on joining teammates and other cycling friends for a night of community, free gear, fun, (and wine)!
Please bring gently used cycling clothing, gear, or bike-related items for trade. Donate an item then pick an item. Any and all clothing and gear left at the end of the night is donated to local bike organiztions.
No gear, no problem! Tickets will be available for purchase at the event for $5 each (cash only). One ticket may be exchanged per one item.
Bids for the annual silent auction will take place from 6-8PM. The silent auction items are always fantastic and frequently cycling-themed. Again, you don't want to miss this.
The money from ticket sales and from the silent auction items is all donated to cycling organizations.
Share the event details with friends and family as this event is open to everyone. The more people, then the more gear there will be available to swap!
In the meantime, if you have any ideas for local business that would be willing to donate any bike gear or bike related items for the silent auction, please contact Andrea at andrea.corcoran@Isiowa.org. Handmade items are also welcome! Bree will be crocheting a cowl in Velorosa colors to donate for the auction. If you've got mad skills and want to contribute something you've made (or a relevant gift certificate) please contact Andrea!
If you would like to volunteer the night of the event please contact Dorie or Kelli at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. At least three Velorosa Volunteers will be needed at this year's Sip & Swap. What a great way to get your volunteer hours in early in the year!
Thanks to Bree Darr for this write up.
