We raised over $10K and made lots of new friends.9.6.17-Joey-the-Cat_IMG_1866 Our CommunityGrows Advisory Board did an amazing job reaching out to their networks for tickets and contacting organizations for raffle donations (we almost doubled our raffle tickets total from last year) and working the room to encourage support (special shout out to Abby Blodgett for doing a fabulous job at running the tournaments)!9.6.17-Joey-the-Cat_IMG_1858Some of our favorite moments were Will Newsom’s pop-a-shot challenge that fell to Christina in short order…9.6.17-Joey-the-Cat_IMG_1803…and the “Santa bag” of baguettes that got distributed to a lot of happy attendees and Mission residents on the walk home.
