Operation: Route 66

As some of you may know, our very own Kurt and Nick Gerber are working on a documentary film project. The film is about them riding their motorcycles across historic Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles. Along the way they'll be interviewing veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - other parents and children who have served our country over the last 10 years. They decided this was an important venture and we completely agree. You can see their latest trailer here: 

The pair will be hosting a fundraiser at the Columbia Yacht Club on Thursday April 19th and would be honored if you would attend. With veteran speakers, raffles, food and drink the goal is to raise some awareness of the issues of our returning veterans as well as to have some fun and gather funds to get this film project made. It's an important issue and we're excited for them as they are going on an adventure and raise the collective level of awareness of these veterans who are deserving of our admiration and respect. 

If you can't make the fundraiser, don't worry - we'll shortly be announcing a print sale featuring photographs, paintings, digital art and prints from the artists in our studio, as well as a hootenanny of sorts at a local bar. You can also support the project by joining the boys on Facebook and Twitter. Any support helps, wether it's spreading the word or even donating a couple dollars

Many Thanks from the Gerber + Scarpelli Crew.
