Binc is thrilled to be mentioned in the bookselling industry newsletter Shelf Awareness today, in relation to bookseller Chuck Robinson’s 2,400 mile fundraising bike ride across the country to attend his 50th high school reunion. He is generously pledging $1 per mile to Binc as a fundraiser during his ride. You can make a pledge to Binc on Chuck’s 2,400 Mile Fundraiser Page.
A sustaining contributor to Binc, Chuck told Shelf Awareness, “Binc has been instrumental in helping booksellers who have suffered hardships or emergencies, and in providing scholarships for higher education. It’s a great foundation–and a way for booksellers and friends to help booksellers.”
Binc executive director, Pamela French expressed our great admiration for Chuck: “The Binc Foundation was thrilled when Chuck told us about his ride–not only because of his generosity to us, but because he embodies the best qualities of booksellers in our industry–the vision and determination to spread great ideas and create strong community bonds. We truly appreciate Chuck’s dedicated support in spreading the word about our programs.”
Our board president Lori Tucker-Sullivan also got a mention in the story, because she will join Chuck on August 11 and bike the last 50 miles of his ride with him.
