Watsonville, CA – California Giant Berry Farms is excited to again serve as a premier sponsor for the Tour De Fresh to be held in July this year and is helping to create some new elements to benefit both riders and sponsors. 

The team at California Giant is already preparing for new and exciting challenges for the riders and additional sponsorship opportunities due to the success from the last four years.  “Its hard to believe we are already celebrating the 5th year of this produce industry event” says Cindy Jewell, VP of marketing.  The four previous years have generated over $600,000 to providing children with access to fruits and vegetables in the form of over 180 salad bars placed in schools across the country.

Some of the changes the company is working on this month include finalizing details for a four day ride instead of the previous year at 3 days.  The extra day was added based on rider feedback as well as the location for the actual ride which begins in beautiful South Lake Tahoe area at Kirkwood Ski Resort.  Additionally, the company is working on creating a finish line festival at the end of the four days that will serve as more of a full party at the finish to allow sponsors a real chance to have tents featuring their product samples, swag, etc. 

California Giant is equally excited about donating a Tour De Fresh auction item to the Bids for Kids Auction being held online now by the United Fresh Start Foundation.  The final auction event will be held at the United Fresh Start Foundation Gala in San Diego on January 16, 2018.  However, bidding has already started on this auction item that includes a weekend in South Lake Tahoe before the Tour de Fresh kicks off on Sunday, July 22, 2018.  Anyone interesting in having a front row seat to the 5th annual Tour de Fresh can log on to the auction and bid for this unique offer that includes lodging, participation in the kick off dinner and start of the Tour de Fresh as well as a 5th annual jersey and rider swag bag.  Log on here for more information. https://www.501auctions.com/unitedfreshstart
