On Friday, June 3, during an event called "Cycle In The Silent Revolution," Fred Gillich will announce the details of a large-scale fundraiser he is co-chairing with Cassie Bauman in October for the Pablove Foundation.
Gillich, the owner of the Too Much Rock for One Hand Showroom, 207 E. Buffalo, is inviting people who are interested in finding out more about the event to drop by the studio between 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The event will take place on Sunday, Oct. 2 on the Milwaukee Mile race track at the State Fair. For $10, kids and adults will be able to ride their bikes on the race track. A yet-to-be-determined film will also screen on the inside of the track.
Pre-registration will also be available at the event on June 3. Plus, a new, limited-edition print and T-shirt will be available for sale and people can meet members of the Pablove Foundation, which raises money to fight childhood cancer. The foundation was set up by former Milwaukeean Jeff Castelaz and his wife, Jo Ann Trailkill, who lost their 6-year-old son, Pablo, to cancer.
Gillich is a long-time friend of the family's.
"Pablo was a friend of mine. We used to eat ice cream and play practical jokes on each other and make fart noises," says Gillich. "Yeah, that little dude was a good friend of mine."
