May 15, 2016
LOS ANGELES, May 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 200 Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) employees, their families and friends will don their blue T-shirts and take part in CicLAvia Southeast Cities on Sunday, May 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CicLAvia connects the six communities of Huntington Park, Walnut Park, South Gate, Florence-Firestone, Lynwood and Watts. Streets will be closed to cars and open for cyclists, pedestrians, runners and skaters to use as a recreational space. CicLAvia is free and open to anyone and organizers call it "an experience, not a race."
The event will also feature music, food and informational booths along the route. The event has no start or stop location and the public is free to take part in any of the hosting communities.
"SoCalGas is proud to be one of the sponsors of CicLAvia, a grassroots event that highlights the need for more family-friendly bike and walking paths," said Andy Carrasco, director of regional public affairs for SoCalGas. "We live and work in these communities and all want healthy families and open spaces."
SoCalGas will have a booth in the Huntington Park area of CicLAvia that will feature information about energy efficiency programs, customer assistance and clean energy solutions such as natural gas vehicles for the heavy duty trucking sector.
Last year, SoCalGas donated more than $5 million to nonprofits as its employees performed thousands of volunteer hours for various nonprofit groups throughout its service territory.
