SLO County

A $15,000 donation has been given by the San Luis Obispo Bicycle Club to Bike SLO County, an organization that works to improve quality of life through “bicycle advocacy, education and inspiration,” according to its website.

The SLOBC’s donation was made possible through proceeds from the club’s signature bicycle rides: the Wildflower Century in April and the Lighthouse Century in September.

The events also make it possible for the club to donate $70,000 annually to bike advocacy and education groups, youth recreational programs and community organizations that help support the rides.

Dunn is the recipient of several community awards, including the SLO Symphony’s 2011 Symphony Honors award; the California Symphony VIP Award; the Barbara George Philanthropy Award in 2009; and, along with her husband, John Dunn, the Louis Tedone Humanitarian Award in 2013.
