ECA Hosts Successful Bike Raffle Fundraiser

rafflewinnerOn August 20th, Eugene Civic Alliance hosted a bike raffle and ice cream social at Capella Market to raise money for Civic Park. The fundraiser began in July when Capella Market, Arriving by Bike, and ECA began selling raffle tickets for a Yuba Boda Boda Cargo Cruiser bike. Out of the thousands of tickets sold for the raffle, Cathy Rasmussen’s was chosen making her the proud new owner of the Yuba Boda Boda cargo bike. She and her sons were “so excited” about their new bicycle, they couldn’t wait to try it out.

The fundraiser raised $4,353 and was a joint effort from Capella Market, Arriving by Bike, and Eugene Civic Alliance. All proceeds from the raffle ticket sales and the ice cream social will go towards creating a new Civic Park on the former Civic Stadium site. Eugene Civic Alliance is grateful to everyone who participated in this event and would like to extend a heartfelt “thank you” to Capella Market and Arriving by Bike for making the event such a success.

Stay tuned to the ECA website, Facebook, and Twitter pages for some exciting updates on Civic Park over the coming weeks!
