Studio Velo and MCBC Benefit Dinner 2011
The star-studded evening at Cibo was spearheaded by StudioVelo founder Scott Penzarella, www.studiovelocycling.com as an entertaining way to increase awareness and funding for Marin County Bicycle Coalition (MCBC).
With 20 guests on hand, wines donated by the Spanish Table in Strawberry, MIll Valley, www.spanishtable.com and cuisine provided by Chef Chris Dressick of SV:Gourmet, the stage was set for a fun-filled evening.
