Ethan Peck to ride and raise funds for D.A.P
Ethan Peck – the tall, dark, and handsome “Patrick Verona” on ABC Family’s 10 Things I Hate About You – will lead Team Ethan Peck in the Tour de Palm Springs on Saturday, February 13, to raise funds for client services at Desert AIDS Project. All pledges made to members of his team, as well as 100% of all registration fees and raffle ticket sales raised by members of the team will benefit D.A.P.
If you’d like to ride with or pledge to Team Ethan Peck, visit tourdepalmsprings.com and designate Desert AIDS Project as your charity. Riders will pay entrance fees of $10-$60, depending on whether they choose a 5, 10, 25, 55, or 100 mile route. For any questions about Team Ethan Peck, please call 760-323-2118, ext. 266.
Since its start in 1999, the Tour de Palm Springs has gone from 300 to more than 8,500 riders, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for designated nonprofit groups. It is now the largest ride of its kind in the western United States. This year, organizers hope to raise over $200,000 for local charities, including D.A.P.
