Through My Eyes

Timing was everything.

Partying for a Cause

Last night was incredibly humbling. A good number of former co-workers, fellow Gaucho alumni, and Bay area friends came out to support Japan Aid SF, and we made almost $6K in ticket and raffle sales.  Not bad for a small Thursday event, especially when you consider the little time we had to plan. Mieko and JT really pulled it off and had generous volunteers bake and cook delicious food for the guests, convinced local businesses to donate awesome raffle prizes, and asked three talented philathropy-friendly bands (Sentinel, Poeticali Distherbd, Sambaxe) to play in front of a very pumped up crowd. It was a healthy turnout, along with a really fun vibe, and we couldn’t have asked more from the people who came to show their support, as well as those who weren’t able to make it, but donated anyway. A massive thank you is in order.

For those of you who missed the benefit and still want to contribute, you may donate directly to JCCCNC’s Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund, and it will be tax-deductible.
