(Feb. 24, 2007) -- On Saturday afternoon (Feb. 24), final preparations were underway on downtown Pine Ave. for Saturday night's "Party With A Purpose" benefiting LB area charities...
...while a Saturday afternoon "Art in Motion Festival" featured Councilwoman Suja Lowenthal in a charity tricycle relay race.
She's in the right lane and in the lead on Linden Ave. in the East Village.

The events are all part of the lead-up to what local business and city officials hope will be an attention-getting, crowd-drawing climax to the six-day, statewide Amgen Bicycle Tour which ends in downtown LB on Sunday, Feb. 25.
