Bike auction September 10, 2014.

 

hilliwack Restorative Justice & Youth Advocacy Association will be hosting their Fall Bike Auction on Saturday, October 21, 2017.

 

Bernard Elementary School has graciously permitted us to use their schoolyard again at 45466 Bernard Avenue, Chilliwack. 

We will have over 100 bikes which have been donated to the organization by the City of Chilliwack and the Chilliwack community. Some of the bikes are in good shape while others need a little bit of work and some can be used for parts. The bike preview begins at 9am with the auction at 10am. We accept cash and credit cards as forms of payment when purchasing bikes.

Program Director Leanna Kemp says “We encourage everyone to come out and buy bikes for the whole family. Get out and enjoy our beautiful fall weather! “

Guywires Mobile Cycle Tech will be on site again offering bike inspections for a donation of $5.00. All proceeds will be donated back to Restorative Justice. Proceeds from the bike auction will support our prevention programs.
