Join Santa Monica Next, Streetsblog Los Angeles, and Streetsblog California as we celebrate two winners of our 2015 Streetsie Awards: Assemblymember Richard Bloom (Streetsblog California elected official of the year) and CycleHop/Hulu for Breeze Bike Share (Streetsblog Los Angeles business of the year).
We’ll be celebrating on March 24, from 6:30-8:30 pm, at Cyclehop’s west coast headquarters in Santa Monica, so reserve your ticket today on Eventbrite. Tickets are $20 per person and can be reserved through Event Brite at the link above. However, we don’t turn people away if that’s not in your budget; free tickets are also available. This event is also free for recurring monthly donors to Streetsblog/Next/
So, why are we celebrating? For those of you who may not know, Streetsblog’s coveted “Streetsie Awards” go to businesses, nonprofits, activists, and elected officials who have done a standout job in making our streets safer, more sustainable, and accessible to all.
Bloom was honored in the first-ever Streetsblog California “Streetsies” for his work at the state legislature and his role in helping make Breeze Bike Share, L.A. County’s first-ever public bike-share system a reality. You can read more at Streetsblog California about Bloom’s work.
Hulu and Cyclehop, which runs Santa Monica’s Breeze Bike Share, are being honored together as the 2015 livable streets-friendly business by Streetsblog Los Angeles. Hulu, the Santa Monica-based entertainment company, stepped forward to sponsor Santa Monica’s 500-bike Breeze Bike Share system, the first large-scale public bike-share in Los Angeles County. Hulu promised an annual commitment of $675,000 for at least five years. Cyclehop is also a technological innovator with the first fleets of smart-bike bike-share.
It’s a party, so come ready to party and honor our friends!
