COLUMBUS, Ga.- East Coast Body Shop and the Wishing Well Foundation have come together to help youth in the Chattahoochee Valley.

Dozens of people stopped by East Coast Body Shop for the 5th annual barbeque fundraiser.

This weekend was more than just a barbecue because each plate contributed to children in need.

100% of the proceeds will fund new bikes and bicycle parts.

Last year the foundation’s effort gave away more than 1,00 bicycles and this year, they hope to top that number.

Children between the ages of 3 and 13 are eligible to receive a new bike as long as they’re accompanied by an adult.

Event Coordinators are asking everyone in the community to contribute, so that every child that’s in need can receive a new bike during the holidays.

The bicycle giveaway will be on December 3.

Anyone with a new or old bicycle can donate to the giveaway my contacting the shop at (706) 685-0823.
