Gritty Up Recap
GritCycle and the John Wayne Cancer Foundation have become known for giving back to the community, and on May 31st and June 1st, we did just that with the sixth annual “Gritty Up” fundraising event to benefit the John Wayne Cancer Foundation.
The fundraising event began on Friday, May 31st, with the “Gritty Up” Kick-Off Party and auction at The Lido House in Newport Beach, California.
Over 700 guests enjoyed an evening of hosted hors d’oeuvres, Duke Bourbon cocktails and Cherry Tart Wine, as well as a live and silent auction featuring a “Grit Blue” Vespa, Signed Charlie Daniels Fiddle, a Five Night Stay in Punta Mita, and many other amazing items.
Marisa Wayne, and GritCycle Co-Founder Matt Bourne helped conduct the live auction as well introduce the musical entertainment that evening provided by the FAM Band (The GritCycle company band) as well as country music super star, Jerrod Niemann.
