Hi everyone! First off, thank you so much for all your support. We’ve received a steady stream of donations, some of which have been quite generous. A big shout out to Keith G., your contribution literally kept the event alive.
Our grand total is currently $2260 and we decided we are going to make BYOBW 2014 happen, even if it means going into debt. Why? Because we love the event just as much as you.

Here’s the updated breakdown of the costs to date. We are stoked the Park and Rec costs aren’t going up this year, but we still have to find out about insurance and SFPD.Â Please continue to pass this quietly around your Big Wheel loving family and friends. We have just a month to go before we roll!
