Custom painted cruiser bike up for raffle to benefit Summer of Jazz

GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colorado – Summer of Jazz co-founder Mary Noone has come up with another new way to support the concert series, and showcase her artwork at the same time.

During intermission of the July 29 concert by Trombone Shorty, Summer of Jazz will raffle off a cruiser bicycle donated by the Gear Exchange in Glenwood Springs.

The Felt Bare Canvass bicycle was custom-painted by Noone herself.

“It’s a fun, festive summer floral scene,” she said of the design.

Raffle tickets are $5 apiece or five for $20, and can be purchased at the Wednesday night Summer of Jazz concerts, as well as at next Tuesday’s Downtown Market.

“We always need a lot of money to pay for the jazz concerts at the end of the year,” Noone said, noting that sponsorships for the event were down this summer. She said they need to raise about $15,000 to help make ends meet this year, and the bike raffle will go a long way toward achieving that.

Tickets will be on sale at stage right during tonight’s concert by Mem Shannon in Two Rivers Park. The drawing will take place around 8:30 p.m. at the July 29 concert, the last in this season’s eight-concert series.
