15 Jun THE 10TH ANNUAL PEDAL ON THE PIER RAISED $400,000 DOLLARS
The 10th annual Pedal on the Pier spin-a-thon fundraiser raised $400,000 for The Harold Robinson Foundation on Sunday, June 5 on the historic Santa Monica Pier. The high energy, four-hour outdoor cycling event was hosted by actor, TV host, and comedian Ben Gleib, and included appearances by Netflix Selling Sunset casts-members Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnett, Star of Cobra Kai Netflix Series Vanessa Rubio , and Wide Receiver for the Green Bay Packers, Allen Lazard, who pedaled for the cause.
“With more than 100 teams and 750 attendees, we were able to raise an incredible $400,000 this year,” said Joyce Hyser Robinson, co-founder of the Harold Robinson Foundation. “With award-winning musical performances, our wonderful celebrity support, food, drinks, fun activities and the beautiful Pacific as the backdrop, I am proud to say Pedal on the Pier has become one of LA’s most popular, physical philanthropic charity events.”
After this year’s totals, Pedal on the Pier will have raised more than seven million dollars for Los Angeles’ underserved kids and families through the Harold Robinson Foundation by providing them with the social, physical, intellectual and emotional impact of a year-round, life-changing camp program.
This year’s event featured food from a variety of local restaurants including Sweetfin Poke, Delicious Pizza, 1212 Santa Monica, Porta Via, Factor’s Famous Deli, Fanny’s and Bertha Mae’s Brownies and beverages from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Vita Coco, RUNA, Dulce Vida Tequila, Good Idea Sparkling Water, and Humboldt Distillery.
