Even with a cold drizzle off and on throughout the day, our partnership with the Bethesda Whole Foods Market really warmed us up! When the receipts were totaled, Whole Foods Bethesda donated a whopping $4992 to WABA. We are so thankful for their generous financial support. Besides the donation it was great to visit with the folks shopping throughout the day and sharing with them our stories of Montgomery County bicycling and how we’re working to make it better. We handed out all our maps (even had to request an emergency delivery of more from our WABA staffers), let residents and shoppers know about our great set of classes and rides coming up, and even our newly announced Bike Camp for kids. So, thank you Whole Foods Bethesda and thanks to all who shopped that day to help support WABA. PS: the Bethesda Whole Foods Market is hosting a special AFTER Bike To Work Day party from 4-7pm on Friday May 15th. Celebrate on your way home via the CCT with $1 hot dogs, $1 freshly shucked oysters. Plus burgers and veggie burgers fresh off the grill for only $3 too!
Our friends at the Whole Foods Bethesda store, (conveniently located right on the Capital Crescent Trail) have selected WABA as the beneficiary of their next 5% day. This means that on Wednesday, April 8th, WABA will receive 5% of the store’s total receipts! The first 25 WABA shoppers who show their member card, buy a membership, or check in with our WABA staff to confirm status, will receive special Whole Foods swag bags, plus win other fun prizes. For all our family riders, there will be a fun scavenger hunt and healthy snacks and kids prizes too! So bring your shopping lists and get ready to stuff your panniers. After you stock up on groceries, meet and chat with WABA staffers (and a few guest star Board members) about WABA’s work in Montgomery County. Plus, we’ll have a table set up to hand out maps and other goodies for WABA supporters who say hi!
