PK Bike Day at Piero’s Italian Cuisine Supports Las Vegas Youth
This past weekend was one of our favorite events of the year – PK Bike Day! For the 12th Annual PK Bike Day at Piero’s filled our parking lot with hundreds of bikes and helmets. Students specially selected to participate at the event come from the After-School All-Stars (ASAS) program from elementary schools across the Las Vegas valley.
Students showed up by the busload and each were able to pick their very own bike and helmet thanks to the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation. Each year the foundation invites up to 200 ASAS students to Piero’s so that they can not only receive a new bike and helmet, but so that they can also properly be trained on the safety of how to put on a helmet and ride their bike.
Since the program started in 2004, PK Bike Day has given out over 2,500 bikes and helmets to deserving Las Vegas youth from a number of schools around the valley.
PK Bike Day is also a charity event to raise funds for other programs held by the Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation. This includes their scholarship program to first generation college students and graduating Las Vegas high school seniors. The Patrick Kelley Youth Foundation also supports holiday events such as the annual Turkey Gobble and Holiday Angels event.
“PK Bike Day at Piero’s brings so much joy to everyone involved. Whether you’re a volunteer, member of the foundation, part of the After-School All-Stars team, or one of the lucky kids who gets to pick a new bike or helmet, this is a day where the smile never leaves your face and makes you feel happy to be part of such a wonderful community,” says Evan Glusman of Piero’s.
We want to thank everyone who was involved in making this day so special and we will see you all again next year!
