July 13: Save Our Water Riverside Pub Crawl

Join us for the third annual Save Our Water pub crawl where we will be touring pubs in Riverside and Avondale helping to support and promote protection of the St. Johns River in partnership with SweetWater Brewing Company.

The crawl will start at 2:00 pm on the patio at Mellow Mushroom Avondale. The tour continues to The Silver Cow, The Garage, ZenCog Bicycle Company, Rain dogs. and end at O’Brothers Irish Pub where we will be raffling off a brand new SweetWater Brewing Perception Tribe custom kayak at 8:00 pm, plus gift cards and prizes at each stop.

**The Final World Cup game will be on at each bar!

The Save Our Water pub crawl is part of SweetWater Brewing Company’s annual “Save Our Water” campaign that kicks off on July 4th and runs through Labor Day. Participating local restaurants and bars will be raising awareness about the importance of clean water as they compete to see who can cover their walls with the most paper fish donations to benefit the River.

June 28th: Bike Swap 2014 at the Canterbury Sales

Bike Swap 2014 is happening, y’all! Please note the change of location (it’s not at ZenCog this time). You’re headed to exotic Avondale!

On Saturday, June 28th, head to Canterbury Street (the intersection with Herschel is a good place to start). Several of the homes on Canterbury are participating in the Canterbury Sales block-party-yard-sale. Garf will be hosting the Bike Swap in and around his yard at 1680 Canterbury Street.

Last summer’s bike swap at the shop was a great success. We had lots of locals and even some folks from out of state selling and swapping used bikes, new and used components and accessories. We hope to see all your sweaty faces again this year!

About Jessica Green Foundation, Inc.:
The Jessica Green Foundation was founded in December of 2008 as a legacy in memory of Jessica Green, a woman diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and high functioning autism. Jessica never allowed her autism to stand in the way of reaching her goals, all the while helping others as well. She passed away in 2007, leaving us with a message: a message that inspired us to be there for others also living with autism.

Jessica was enamored with athletics, playing Varsity Fast Pitch Softball and bowled at the Jax Blast Youth Bowling League. Most of all, she loved cycling, riding around for hours, beckoning the neighborhood kids to “ride with me” – Thus the birth of our signature fundraiser, a cycling event called Ride With Me for Autism.

The Jessica Green Foundation is here to improve the lives of those with autism by providing the tools, services and support that they need. Some of these supports and services are Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA), speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, sensory integration, social skills training, vocational skills training, as well as intermediate and long-term rehabilitation. The families need comfort in knowing that their children will be taken care of when they are no longer able.
