There's a pretty neat event that I plan to attend in Eau Claire this Thursday, December 4th. The Birkie office is doing a fundraising campaign to establish a permanent start area and improve the finish line experience. ABSF Director Ben Popp will be there and food and beverages will be provided.
Events like the American Birkebeiner need a tremendous amount of financing to operate. I've been involved with a couple smaller races, and I know how the expenses pile up. I can't even imagine taking on something as big as the American Birkebeiner.
Tickets for the fundraising mixer this Thursday are $50, and you can but them at www.birkie.com/future. The event is limited to 90 guests.
Here's all the facts once again:
What: Birkie Fundraiser/Mixer
Where: Northwoods Brew Pub and Grill, Eau Claire, WI
When: Thursday, December 4th, 6-9 PM
Why: Because I'm going to be there (I'll be arriving about 6), and it's awesome to support the Birkie
