Lucky bed may help another team win Bed Race
The bed that won the last two Bed Races in 2010 and 2011, a little worn from a fierce competition will go up for auction in early August at the Bed Race's Build-A-Bed Happy Hour Workshop. Time and place will be announced, but we just wanted to give you the heads up in case you would like to bid.
The bed looks simple, but $1000 worth of technology went into creating it. So if you are considering racing and would like to attempt to take on the winningist team, racing them against their new bed, using their former bed, this is your chance! The team decided that they wanted something new to race with this year and so that is how the auction came to be.
Olav Smit, owner of The Grove Spot, graciously offered up the bed and all proceeds at auction will go toward the charities that are selected this year as beneficiaries of the Great Grove Bed Race. The charities will be announced probably in August. There will be two. The first will be whichever charity this year's celebrity Grand Marshal chooses (the Grand Marshall will be announced at a future date) and the second charity, will be a local Coconut Grove organization, also to be announced.
As we get closer to the event, it's apparent that many new groups are going to take part and race beds this year. It should be an exciting event, as usual, on that Labor Day Sunday. Please come back to the Grapevine for updates from now until race day. We'll let you know more about the bed auction as we get the info.
