Shooting Stars Foundation’s – Gambado! September, 2009

Category: DBS Community, Thank You








The Denman Bike Shop was proud to be part of Vancouver’s preeminent fund raising gala organized by Shooting Stars Foundation’s Charity Auction – Gambado! was, yet again,  a huge success  this year.  which raised money for HIV and AIDS  agencies.  This year Denman Bike Shop donated the Electra Amsterdam Girard “Tree of Life”.

The “Tree of Life” is a Comfortable 3 speed Amsterdam by Electra, featuring the Art of Alexander Girard (1907-1993). Alexander Girard challenged the bland palette of the 1950’s and brought about Multi-Cultural design trends that are as innovative today as they were back then. Nature’s intricate details, hand-painted folk art and imaginative prints; Girard’s timeless style is the perfect complement to the Classic Amsterdam. The “Tree of Life” starts with a Traditional step-through Amsterdam frame, painted Snow White and adorned with reproductions of Alexander Girard’s Art and Graphics; matching Skirt guard, Chain guard, Seat, Grips, Carrier Rack and Fenders. Even the Wheels are painted to match! Forest Green rims and Blue Sky spokes. The bike has a functioning retro Headlight and lots of show Chrome. With 3 speeds, the “Tree of Life” is Easy to use and Fun to Ride. Also includes; a Lifetime Warranty on the frame and Free Tune-ups for 1 year courtesy of the Denman Bike Shop at Stanley Park. This rolling Tapestry will take you where You want to go; in Comfort and Style. Get caught up in the imagination of Alexander Girard and the Electra Bicycle Company as you Cruise through life on the “Tree of Life”
