Sacramento welcomes the first Scooter Jamboree at The Scoot Shop this Saturday and Sunday to raise money for arts and music.

In a creative collaboration between The Fay Throckmorton, Kenneth Scott Mackrel Organization for the Arts (T&M Organization) and The Scoot Shop, the Scooter Jamboree was created as a charity event to help local youth gain access to art and music and gain revenue for the city, according to Rebekah Spurgeon, co-owner of The Scoot Shop.

"We liked the charity and thought it would be a fun collaboration," Spurgeon said.

The Scoot Shop, located at 1619-A E St. opened last year as the only full service scooter repair shop and dealership.  The festivities will begin Saturday with a meet-and-greet from 5-10 p.m featuring live music by Jeffrey Valentine and the Storytella’s, fire spinning after dark and an art show featuring Chicago scooter artist Casey Sachen at The Scoot Shop.

Sunday will kick-off at 10 a.m. with a two hour scooter ride for charity around the capitol followed by a dinner party that night at The Scoot Shop. Proceeds from the ride will benefit T&M Organization for the Arts.

"We’re hoping to create a great community event for the general public and at the same time raise money to help the youth," Spurgeon said.
T&M Organization helps to provide art and music lessons, as well as supplies, to children around the Sacramento area who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the rich artistic culture that the city has to offer.

"We are going to have an art and music drive during these events as well," said Sheree Cano, director of events and public relations for T&M. "We’re going to collect art and music supplies and donate them to after-school programs and less fortunate schools that have had to cut art programs." 

The art and music drive will take place all weekend and donations will be accepted year round by the T&M Organization. 

According to The Scoot Shop’s website, Registration is $25 in advance and $30 at the door. You can register online, by phone or in person at The Scoot Shop. Registration includes food and drink tickets, T-shirts and raffle tickets. All shapes, colors and sizes of scooters are welcome, but don’t forget your helmet.

"We would love to see this event on an annual basis to see more tourism and revenue for the city," Cano said.
