Suggested Donation $10-15 (pay at the door)
Dance from 7pm-11pm

Join us for an all-star square dance to benefit Columbia City non-profit Bike Works. Our featured old-time musicians from North Carolina and Virginia will lead the dancing, along with local heroes The Tallboys. All profits go to Bike Works, an organization that provides workshops on bicycle repair and a variety of innovative bicycling camps to underserved youth in South Seattle. They’ve been around for over a decade in Columbia City, and have seen a generation of youth come up through their programs. Sometimes these programs have served as family, or a support system for the youth, and some kids have gone on to careers in bicycle repair or returned to the shop.

You can also help out Bike Works this holiday season by donating something on their wishlist:

Airline Miles (to get us to NYC for the Youth + Bike Summit), or connections with Orbitz, Expedia, Airlines and the like

Spray Bottles for our classroom cleaning supplies
