Go for a spin and combat breast cancer at the RYDE for a Reason Kick-Off Cocktail Party on Thursday, October 20, followed by an indoor Charity Ride on Saturday, October 22, 2016.
Clink your glass and clip in your shoes for a good cause at RYDE for a Reason, the River Oaks cycling studio’s two-part fundraiser to help The Rose battle breast cancer.
The event begins with a bang on Thursday night, October 20 with a kick-off party inside the RYDE studio in River Oaks Shopping Center, with an open bar featuring beer, wine and champagne; bites from Seasons 52, Macaron by Patisse and Dolce Delights; a silent auction; DJ tunes; and more. All proceeds from the studio shindig will benefit The Rose.
On Saturday morning, October 22, RYDE instructors will lead five back-to-back classes, with all bike revenues and added donations going to directly to The Rose. Plus, beer, mimosas and food from Southern Goods will be provided to help keep the party going all day long.
Last year, the multi-day, event raised more than $16,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. For 2016, and given that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, RYDE is hoping to blow past that number in support of The Rose, a Houston-based nonprofit that provides women in need with critical support to battle cancer.
Thursday Kick-Off Cocktail Party
RYDE gets things in gear over drinks, starting off with an in-studio cocktail party and silent auction.
Admission includes a raffle, hors d’oeuvres and desserts from area venues, drinks, and entertainment. Tickets are $40 per person in advance; $50 at the door. Ticket sales benefit The Rose.
Saturday Morning Charity RYDE
The indoor cycling event will follow on Saturday, October 22, with five cycling classes, all co-taught by RYDE’s top instructors. Choose your level of support by booking a bike for various prices ranging from $20 to $150.
Classes will be held at 8:30am, 9:30am, 10:30am, 11:45am and 12:45pm. Beer, mimosas and food from Southern Goods will be provided.
