Saturday 14 October 2017 Cogs 4 Cancer : End of Ride/Season Party
The popular Cogs 4 Cancer cycle covers 1400 km from London to Antibes with 30 cyclists raising more than €242000 this year in the fight against cancer. While that is a phenomenal amount, let’s get behind the team and keep the funds growing by attending the fundraiser party that will be hosted in the evening at The View in the Palais des Congrès in Juan les Pins.
Entertainment includes a DJ, Deceptionist and Contortionist with snacks and nibbles on offer; the event starts at 8pm and goes till late. 100% of ticket sales goes to charity and 30% of drinks sales goes to charity. There are also the Cogs 4 Cancer wristbands/bracelets on sale across the French Riviera, or you can opt to visit the website to donate www.cogs4cancer.org
Note: The cyclists will be arriving at Antibes the previous day on Friday 13 October 2017 following a tribute ride from Port Gallice around the Cap d’Antibes and arriving at the IYCA at Port Vauban in Antibes approx. 4.45pm with the arrival party from 5pm, sponsored by Gourmet Deliveries.
