Announcing the 2019 CHQGF Charities
The fifth-annual Chautauqua Gran Fondo - Cycling for Charity event will take place on Saturday, August 24 at Webb’s Resort in Mayville, NY.
Each year, proceeds from this fun, family-friendly event are given to three local charity organizations. This year, we are proud to partner with Chautauqua Hospice and Palliative Care, The Créche, Inc., and Infinity Visual and Performing Arts.
Chautauqua Hospice is located on Fairmount Avenue in Lakewood, and provides services for families with loved ones coping with a serious illness. The organization provides expert care, delivers emotional and spiritual support, and helps ease the comfort for loved ones in the final days of their lives.
Creche has supported the needs of children of the community since 1900. The organization is continually supporting children in unique and inspiring ways by providing backpacks, school supplies, cribs, clothing, Christmas gifts, hospital equipment and summer camps.
Infinity Visual and Performing Arts Inc. provides children with a creative environment where they can express themselves. It is a place that builds positive relationships in a safe and secure environment. A place where children of all ages, races, socio-economic statuses, and religions can work together and create together. Young people are encouraged to grow, learn, and lead through hands-on learning experiences.
Last year, thanks to the generosity of participants, volunteers and sponsors, the 2018 CHQ Gran Fondo cycling event raised raised $15,000 for local charities.
