Wheels 4 Life Gala

Share this:


The Aliso Creek Inn & Golf Course played host to a meaningful cause on the evening of Sept. 27. More than 230 guests attended the first-ever Wheels 4 Life gala, a fundraiser benefitting Laguna locals Hans and Carmen Rey’s charity organization of the same name. Wheels 4 Life has donated more than 5,500 bikes to individuals in more than 22 developing countries, which allow recipients to travel to school, work and healthcare facilities that they would be unable to get to on foot. Guests of the event enjoyed internationally inspired cocktails and appetizers, music by Nick Hernandez and the Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins, as well as both live and silent auctions. Auction items were diverse, ranging from holidays in Italy and autographed Foo Fighters memorabilia to snowboard equipment. With such a worthy cause and fantastic auction items, the fundraiser was extremely successful, raising $54,000 and meeting the organization’s goal of funding the purchase of 500 new bicycles.
