The Bicycle Coalition’s Third Annual Gala was held on Thursday, September 29, and it was our best, most successful fundraiser ever.

The event was held at Front & Palmer in Fishtown, and honored Patrick Cunnane with the Maguire Award, and gave awards to Andrew Stober of University City District, Leslie S. Richards of PennDOT, and Katie Migliocco of Capital One.

Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia members, friends, and supporters were additionally introduced to new Cadence Youth Cycling program manager Taylor Kuyk-White, and heard about the program’s success from cyclist Krystal Philson.
