The Ride to Conquer Cancer is fast approaching and the Urban Yarns team is working hard to prepare for the ride that takes place June 19th and 20th from Vancouver to Seattle. Not only are we putting in lots of miles on our bikes, but we are also fundraising both individually and cooperatively. With our team of 22, we have already raised over $70,000 and are still going strong. Our next fundraising event will be a Silent Auction at our new Point Grey location, 4437 West 10th Avenue, starting this coming Monday, May 24th. We are open on the holiday Monday from 12-5. The Grand Finale will be Friday, May 28th from 7-9 with appies and beverages provided. We have lots of items to bid on ranging from knitting supplies (of course), to jewellery, restaurant and spa gift certificates, Lulu lemon groove pants, a fabulous counselling package, a dermatologist developed skin care package, wine, a cake decorating class, the gorgeous bike currently in our window, and much, much more. So, come visit us next week and place your bids! All proceeds go to the BC Cancer Foundation.
