SEQUIM — The Sequim Lavender Farmers Association recently announced the local nonprofits that benefited from the 2018 Tour de Lavender.
According to a press release, the association donated more than $8,000, or nearly 25 percent of the event’s ticket sales, to local nonprofits.
The annual bicycle event, held the first weekend in August, draws hundreds of riders to the lavender farms in the Dungeness Valley.
Some of the beneficiaries of the 2018 tour include the Boys and Girls Clubs, the Sequim Wheelers, the Olympic Peninsula Bicycle Alliance and the Peninsula Trails Coalition.
Starting with the seventh tour, this August, the Olympic Peninsula Bicyclist Alliance will operate the annual bicycle tour.
