MAKE PLEDGE


PLEDGE RAISING

Increase your self-satisfaction and double your fun by raising pledges to help support our veterans, and the blind and visually impaired. Ask your friends, neighbors and family if they will help support our efforts by sponsoring you in the ride.

Raise pledges individually or be part of a cycling team competing against other teams raising pledges.

Pledge forms

We have made it very easy for you to accomplish this by creating a solicitation letter to hand out, send or email and a pledge registration form to keep track of the pledges you raise. Set a goal for yourself, knowing that you will greatly help two very worthwhile causes- and then DO IT!

PLEDGE TEAM CHALLENGE CUPS

Form a "pledge team" to raise funds together and compete against other teams in raising pledges for our two great causes. A minimum of 5 cyclists per team with a minimum of $100 in pledges per rider.

"The Cycle Challenge Cup"

Club, corporate, or individual teams will compete for this trophy to be awarded at the event to the team that raises the most pledges and be given a case of champagne to enjoy at the festival.

"The Vintners Cup"

Winery or vineyard company teams will compete for the vintners cup to be awarded at the event to the team that raises the most pledges and be given a case of champagne to enjoy at the festival.
