For years, we here at Laemmle Theatres have been passionate supporters of cycling — bicycles can save the world! — especially for a good cause. A good cause is coming up next month: Tour de Summer Camps.
From Greg Laemmle: “Funds raised go directly to providing scholarships for L.A. kids to attend summer camp. The money stays in the community, and helps provide life-changing (and life-improving) experiences for kids who will grow up to become the leaders of our community, Jewish and otherwise. Laemmle Theatres would not be what it is today were it not for the lessons learned by me while growing up at Camp Alonim, or the sense of mission instilled in company VP Jay Reisbaum from his years as a camper and staff member at Camp Ramah.
“We know that all our patrons are not Jewish (to steal a line from INDEPENDENCE DAY, “Nobody’s perfect.”), but we hope that all our patrons can recognize that the Jewish community has contributed much to the tapestry that is Los Angeles, and help us in giving something back through this event.
