Wilmot Cancer Center Offers VIP Viewing for Rochester Saturn Criterium

Drawing for Trek Racing Bicycle Supports Cancer Care, Research

Monday, June 04, 2007

This Trek Madone SL 5.2 bicycle is valued at $3,500 and will be given away at the Saturn Rochester Twilight Criterium.

Fans of the Saturn Rochester Twilight Criterium can enjoy an evening of dinner and premium views at the Wilmot Cancer Center VIP Dinner presented by Saturn of Rochester and Saturn of West Ridge on Saturday, June 23, at the Blue Cross Arena.

The Saturn Rochester Twilight Criterium is an international professional bicycle race that draws competitors and fans from throughout the world to see the champion cyclists speed through downtown Rochester streets. This event is quickly becoming one of the most popular for bicyclists because of the challenges of the downtown Rochester course.

The VIP area will be open from 6 to 11 p.m. at the Blue Cross Arena for hors d’oeuvres from 6 to 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner from 6:30 to 8 p.m., and dessert. This event offers Criterium fans a climate-controlled area with some of the best views of the course and indoor and outdoor seating.

Tickets for the VIP event are $35 per person and available by calling (585) 242-8988.

The Wilmot Cancer Center is beneficiary of proceeds from the Criterium.  Funds will support the center’s comprehensive campaign to expand local cancer care and research. 

Wilmot volunteers are also selling tickets to win a 2007 Trek Madone SL 5.2 road bike, valued at nearly $3,500 and donated by Full Moon Vista Bike & Sport.  The bike will be on display from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, June 8 at the Kornberg Medical Research Building at the University of Rochester Medical Center; Saturday, June 9, at Camille’s Sidewalk Café; and Saturday, June 16 at Eastview Mall.
