WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - Gunkholer partnered with Jimmy’s WB to hold a Bushels for Bikes fundraiser Saturday. Customers are encouraged to donate a new bike or give $10 to Bushels for Bikes and get free all-you-can-eat oysters in return.
The company Gunkholer sells merchandise such as hats, beanies, and t-shirts. Co-founder Cam Martin wanted to start the Bushels for Bikes fundraiser because he remembers getting a new bike for Christmas was always his favorite present.
“The idea of a kid getting a bike for Christmas is the like the greatest present ever. I remember when I would wake up and see a bike in the living room. It was the best thing in the world," Martin says.
Bushels for Bikes began last year having received 201 bikes. This year they hope to beat that number.
All proceeds will go to Bushels for Bikes along with 10 percent of the merchandise sales.
The fundraiser is from noon until 5 p.m.
