Bublr Bikes holds first fundraiser
The event will provide the opportunity to recognize Bublr’s launch partners as well as celebrate its fourth anniversary year.
Bublr Bikes, Greater Milwaukee’s local nonprofit bikeshare program, is holding its first fundraising event on Thursday, June 6 at La Lune Collection in Riverwest. The event will provide the opportunity to recognize Bublr’s launch partners as well as celebrate its fourth anniversary year serving the communities in the Greater Milwaukee area.
“Pedal Forward” awards will be presented to the Astor Street Foundation and the Mandel Group – each contributed significant financial support during Bublr’s launch. Sarah Zimmerman with the Astor Street Foundation says, “Bublr Bikes is emblematic of an exciting new Milwaukee. Bublr and its supporters in government and the business and philanthropic communities have prioritized access and equity in the design of this innovative bikeshare system. Astor Street Foundation is proud to be among Bublr’s many local partners.”
Event Co-Chairs include Linda Gorens-Levey, General Capital Group; Bob Monnat, Mandel Group; and Curt Culver, MGIC. “Bikesharing helps build strong, sustainable communities says Gorens-Levey. As our local nonprofit bike sharing program, Bublr promotes mobility, wellness, economic development and increased quality of life, all of which intersect with my other community and civic involvement. Serving as a Co-Chair has also allowed me to demonstrate my support for the fabulous staff and board leadership of the organization as well as the event hosts, Mario and Cathy Costantini who do so much to enrich our City.”
The event is hosted by La Lune Collection owners Cathy and Mario Costantini. “We’re thrilled to host the inaugural ‘Bublr Bash’ at La Lune Collection, right here in Riverwest! Bublr Bikes is an initiative that we both truly believe in – it not only provides valuable, healthy, and sustainable transportation, but also promotes the residential and commercial development of our Milwaukee neighborhoods. And, it is our sincere hope for a Bublr Bikes station in Riverwest very soon!”
