WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - It's one of the more popular items on children's holiday wish list; however, a brand new bike is not always within a family's financial means.

For Pat Patregnani, the founder of BikeStreet USA, that just didn't sit right with him, so he teamed up with Bikes for Tykes to help this holiday season be a little brighter for South Florida children.

"Beginning November 7, BikeStreet USA, at its eight locations, will donate one bike to a needy child in the name of its 1,000 customers regardless of what you purchased. So you could come in here and buy a pack of GU for 10 cents, and we're going to donate a bike to a child."

In addition to the 1,000 bikes, BikeStreet USA has partnered with the Florida Panthers, who will also provide 1,000 Florida Panthers tickets.

After the holiday season, BikeStreet USA will continue the partnership with Bikes For Tykes by donating one new bike for each road bike sold, all year round.
