As part of the event, Dream Team volunteers also participated in the Iowa Bicycle Coalition Expo where they shared stories and information about Our Volunteers and Our Mission. During the expo caring individuals and generous bike clubs donated over $1500.00 to the Dream Team.
As part of the Route Announcement Party there was a silent auction in which several items donated by volunteers and RAGBRAI were included to raise money for Dream Team. As part of the silent auction we were able to raise another $1500.00.
In total, the Bike Expo and silent auctions during the weekend raised over $3000.00! It was a great weekend and these contributions will sponsor 3 kids in the 2014 Dream Team.
