Skye Lounge to Host a "Bike & Car Show"To Benefit the Washington, DC's Coalition for the Homeless

Washington, DC (August 20th, 2008)– Skye Lounge of Washington, DC's financial district plans to host a "Bike & Car
Show" fundraising event the evening of Saturday, September 6, 2008. The charity chosen to benefit from dollars raised is the Coalition for the Homeless.

Owners of Skye chose the Coalition for the Homeless because they have participated in homeless fundraisers in the past with St. Luke's. "I know this is a major problem in the nation's capital and it should not be. The homeless population in Washington, DC is the greatest per capita of any city in the US. Through Skye we have the opportunity to give back and hopefully help alleviate a growing issue in the city" they both add.

The evening will showcase a myriad of exotic vehicles. Guests are encouraged to bring their own bikes and motorcycles as well. To accommodate the number of cars and bikes, from 6pm to 10pm, the city will close down blocks inclusive of 19th, 20th, and Eye Streets, NW specifically for this event.Some of the exotic cars which will be featured include the Attack Roadster, Toyota Supra, Viper, Lamborghini Guilardo, Maserati, and the Drift Nissan 240. Among the motorcycles are the R1 Yamaha, Hyabusa, Suzuki GSXR (models 600, 750 and 1000).

A $10 or $20 donation for the cause is suggested for attendees. Skye will provide live music, a date auction, prizes and drink and food specials. Reservations are only for those showcasing cars or bikes and admittance is first come first serve. Red Bull, Grey Goose, Race Apeel , MischiefTV, Eurobeat , Atyer Service have signed on to be corporate sponsors of the benefit.
