 -Do you think this is a good way to get the word out?

Absolutely...Staple a small piece of paper with info to each bike
before it goes back out. Have a good representative of your org who
can chat with people who have questions/want to know more.

-do you think this is a good way to raise money for the shop (tip jars)?

Yep!  If you have t-shirts or other merch type stuff, some folks are
more comfortable buying something than giving a donation/tip.

 -what did you have to do for logistics/liabillity and planning ahead?

Liability, nothing.  As long as you have a good system in place to
deal with people who think you damaged/lost their bike or who lost
their ticket you shouldn't have any problems.  The organizers will
feel better to know you're thinking about these issues and know what
to do about them.

Ahead of time we got commitments from volunteers (weeks ahead),
planned what we were bringing (tools, stand, water, bananas, display,
stickers etc.), got t-shirts to identify volunteers and tried not to
drink too much the night before, ha.

I'm sure you already checked the valet page on the wiki, but here it
is again for good measure:

good luck!
