Art Spectacular Moves to Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids eBay Store

Hundreds of underprivileged children will be pedaling brand new bicycles thanks to the generosity of art collectors who attended the 2009 Bike Art Spectacular reception on Saturday, November 7th. The Bike Art Spectacular, which has moved to Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids eBay store (http://stores.ebay.com/Kimberlees-Bikes-for-Kids), raised over $14,000 during the event's reception.

"It was a great evening," says Dan Gindling, president of Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids, and Kimberlee's husband. "People came to celebrate bike art, to celebrate Kimberlee. We had great food, two barbershop quartets, a caricature artist, and of course the stars of the evening, the bicycle art, which was all donated. I can't thank the artists enough for their donations."

The most expensive piece, "Tour de France", a 6' x 3' hand-painted aluminum wall sculpture by Israeli artist Dave Gerstein, was sold to a New York collector for $6,600. The collector also bought the gallery-framed Leroy Neiman "Indoor Cycling" limited edition print for $2,575.

"I am so pleased to be able to contribute to your wonderful and worthy cause," the collector said.

The Bike Art Spectacular has moved to Kimberlee's Bikes for Kids eBay Store (http://stores.ebay.com/Kimberlees-Bikes-for-Kids), where art enthusiasts can bid and buy not only bicycle art but other items as well, including NiteRider lighting systems, and KBK jerseys and T-shirts.
