SEBASTIAN – Last Saturday, over 100 people took part of the Great Bike Bar-A-Thon in Sebastian to raise money for HALO Rescue No-Kill Shelter.
“The total donation raised from The Great Bike Bar A Thon was $3930.00 for H.A.L.O. and the animals! And with the wish list donations collected, we can easily push that number to $4,000,” HALO’s founder Jacque Petrone said.
Saturday’s event took bicycle riders to Pareidolia Brewing Company, Mash Monkeys Brewing Company, Capt’n Butcher’s Seafood Grill & Bar, Captain Hiram’s Sandbar, Crab Stop of Sebastian, Earl’s Hideaway Lounge, Pelican Pub, and Tiki Bar & Grill.
“An extra thank you to Chris Russell and Cathryn Bootes for working so hard to create this fun event for local non-profits each year! Y’all are awesome! Thanks so much to all of you for your support for these great causes,” Petrone added.
The Great Bike Bar-A-Thon is a bicycle ride to several establishments in Sebastian. Each event raises money for different charities.
In October 2018, Great Bike Bar-A-Thon raised money for the Marine Resources Council to help save the lagoon.
