One fine looking red machine has been created.

“As Californians, we’re deeply moved by this tragedy that affects so many and hits so close to home,” offers Vintage Electric founder Andrew Davidge, “The bike we’ve created allows us to contribute in a way that’s both personal and meaningful to all of us – we hope that proceeds from it will provide a small bit of relief to those who’ve lost everything.”

Vintage Electric joins the San Jose Sharks, Bell Helmets, GoPro, Timbuk2 and dozens of generous contributors to create a wide variety of incredible auction offerings. Items will be auctioned at a charity dinner hosted by Black Sheep Brasserie.

Feels right at home at the fire station.

Head Chef Jeff Fitzgerald, along with the region’s top wine, food and beer purveyors, have collaborated to create a four course prix fixe dining experience sure to delight attendees while they peruse and bid upon the many donated items.

Event proceeds benefit the Direct Impact Fund which are then immediately distributed to individual GoFundMe victim accounts. 95% of the ticket cost and 100% of the silent auction items are to be donated directly to fire victims. Individuals wishing to help, but unable to attend the event are encouraged to donate directly to the event’s GoFundMe page.
