Bromberg Brothers’ Blue Ribbon Restaurants, a restaurant group headquartered in New York City, will donate to its employees 160 new Cannondale Quick recreational bicycles. The new bikes will be ridden by Blue Ribbon employees as part of the company’s 200 plus member “Blue Ribbon Restaurants/Naked Nuggets Charity Bike Team” participating as a “Top-Tier Team” in the upcoming National MS Society’s “Bike MS NYC” Event on October 3rd, 2010. The new bikes are part of the company’s efforts to encourage health and wellness, greener business practices, and raise money for charity at the same time.
The bike donation event will include helmets and associated gear, safety instructions, helmet fittings and other assistance to Blue Ribbon employees provided by various sponsors including Cannondale, the NYC DOT, Bike New York, NYC Transportation Alternatives, the NYC – Southern Chapter of the National MS Society, Cycling Sports Group and The Bike Express/52 Division.
The bike distribution will be followed by a fundraiser party at Brooklyn Bowl from 7-11 PM called Local x Local, which features the best in local food, beer, and music. Special features will include free chips and salsa from Brooklyn Salsa, and a performance by rising star Maluca.
Maluca, who joins the ranks of M.I.A. and Santigold on Diplo’s record label Mad Decent, brings the heat with “tropical punk” ghettotech and a fierce latin flare.
