Books On Wheels is heading back to New Orleans with thousands of free books and enough spare parts to repair dozens of bikes, but first we need to raise some money. One way we are doing this is raffling off a brand new Diamondback Della Cruz 1.0, a really cool cruiser that is ready to roll. Tickets are only $1, and we will be selling them everyday through March 29th. That night, we will have a fundraiser at New York Deli, at the end of which we will draw the winning ticket. This is a $275 bike, but could be yours for only $1. Or $10. Or $50. It just depends on how you want to play the odds. The important thing is that every dollar will go towards our trip to New Orleans. If you want to know why this trip is so important, you can talk with Shelley or Ward at the NY Deli fundraiser, or just read Books On Wheels' blog entries for March 2008 detailing the specifics of last year's trip.
