Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORRANCE, Calif. - Apr 21, 2017 - What so many of us may have taken for granted in our youth is often not available to many youth from low-income families – the pleasure of a ride on your first bicycle. For these kids, a bike can mean the difference between getting to school or not, getting to see the world beyond your neighborhood – getting a chance.
WHAT: 100 Boys & Girls Club youth, ages 7-18, will receive a brand new bicycle in the presence of their family, friends and the community thanks to the PVG Group.
The selected youth participated in an essay contest to detail why a new bicycle would make a difference for them. The most impressive essays writers will share their essay with attendees at the event.
WHO: The PVG Group is a wealth management advisory team in Rolling Hills Estates. They have partnered with Jay Wolff of Helen’s Cycles in Santa Monica, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor (BGCLAH) and Michael Shafer of The Depot Restaurant in Torrance to coordinate this 7th annual event where the 700th bicycle they have donated will be awarded.
Torrance Police Department and Torrance Fire Department volunteers will teach the children how to safely ride a bicycle during the celebration.
Youth are selected from BGCLAH’s San Pedro, Wilmington and Port of Los Angeles Clubhouses. The mission of BGCLAH is to serve all young people, “especially those who need us most.” For almost all of the youth participants, this contest is their only opportunity to receive a new bicycle.
WHEN: Sunday, April 30, 2017 – 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
WHERE: The Depot Restaurant,1250 Cabrillo Ave, Torrance, CA 90501
