ARTCRANK DC raised $2,300 for WABA

In case you missed it, a few weekends ago ARTCRANK DC came to DC’s 1776 venue (right on the 15th Street cycletrack, conveniently). With prints and posters from more than 20 local artists on display and for sale, the event brought together bicycle lovers, art lovers, and of course beer lovers for an awesome poster party for bike people. We’d like to extend a HUGE thank you to Oskar Blues Brewery for donating the beer for the event so that WABA could take home the proceeds from all beer sales during the show to help fund our ongoing regional advocacy and outreach efforts. Artcrank logo blackWABA would also like to say a big bicycle thank you to the ARTCRANK team for coming to DC for their first ever show in our Nation’s Capitol and for selecting WABA to be the non-profit cause partner of the show. Thanks to ARTCRANK and Oskar Blue we raised over $2,300! We can’t wait till they return in 2015. And a huge thank you to all of our beautiful volunteers! Volunteers

ARTCRANK DC is happening on Saturday!

575x240_ARTCRANK WABA is super excited to announce that ARTCRANK DC is coming to town on Saturday, November 8th. What is ARTCRANK, you ask? It’s a poster party for bike people. And it’s going to be awesome. Why does WABA want you to attend? Because WABA is the non-profit cause partner, so all funds raised from donations for brews (thank you to Oskar Blues for providing the craft beer!) help support our work to make bicycling better for YOU throughout the region.
