Pleasure and Pain: BRIDGEMEN Help Oakland East Bay Gay Men's Chorus!

Wine. Cuisine. Music. Men. "Pleasure and Pain." All in a day's work for BRIDGEMEN!

The Oakland East Bay Gay Men's Chorus were so impressed with us after working with us at AtmosQueer, we were the first they called to help with "Pleasure and Pain," their biggest fundraiser of the year!

It begins with a VIP wine reception and the silent auction, followed by a spectacular concert at 6:30pm! BRIDGEMEN will assist with the silent and live auctions and enjoy the fruits of our labor as we enjoy a complimentary dinner and watching the concert together

Note: Please try to dress in all black.  The concert ends at 9:30, so some help will be needed for auction checkout until 10.  So, if there are any volunteers willing to stay later, great! There is an optional orientation and training breakfast event on Saturday, 8/17 from 9-11 AM at 337 Lakeview Ave., in San Francisco.  It would be great if you can make that, too!  

The Oakland East Bay Gay Men's Chorus has raised funds and donated concert proceeds to Lavender Seniors of the East Bay, P-FLAG Napa Chapter, The Rainbow Community Center, The Lighthouse Community Center, The Center for AIDS Services and The Pacific Center for Human Growth.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
