The goal of the Bend Velodrome Project Party, according to Board Member and Source contributor Michelle Bazemore, was to attract 100 people and raise $1000.
The party, hosted by GoodLife Brewing Co. last Thursday, drew in more than 275 people and, in the process, raised $2,404. The group will use the money to file for federal tax-exempt status as they move forward with their goal of bringing a world-class velodrome to Bend.
