Check out the photos from last week's events on the calendar; Somalia famine fundraiser this Thursday in the city

Hi folks,

 Thanks to everyone who came out to one of the three events we held last week (the Stern Grove concert, the happy hour at Joya and the BBQ in San Jose); each event was fun. I'm in the process of adding pictures from the events on the site- please check them out here.

 

I also wanted to let everyone know about a very special fundraiser event happening this Thursday in the city at Artitud. I would post it as an event but I can't attend due to a prior commitment. 

The fundraiser is for Somalia famine relief. You may know that in the last two months more than 29,000 children under the age of five have died due to the devastating drought and famine in Somalia. Reports tell us another 640,000 children are acutely malnourished and at risk of dying.

 

The happy hour fundraiser is requesting a $20 donation from each guest. Kindly use the following link to donate and register to the event: http://www.yiribakids.org/events.html
You can use this link to donate even if you can't attend the event itself.

All proceeds are going to CARE; a leading humanitarian organization who is actively responding to the current crises. A representative will be on site to educate us on the current developments. Please visit http://www.care.org/ for more information.

 

Thanks and have a great week!

-Lakeisha
