365 Covfefe Days Later: Comedy with a Cause
Now that all the turkey and leftovers have been digested, it's time for a little reminder of just how fast this year has flown by. I'm so not ready for Christmas yet!
For many of us, myself included, 2017 has been a tough, trying and super political year. So to keep the momentum of community organizing going, I wanted to update you on the results of Organizing for Action San Francisco's free comedy show and donation drive for our friends at Hospitality House.
The Nov. 9th event raised an impressive $190 in cash donations and a big pile of in-kind donations to help those living on the streets get through these cold winter months.
Nearly 40 people came out to PianoFight for a night of laughs with our fantastic guest comedians Drew Harmon, Joe Gorman, Samantha Gilweit, Valerie Vernale, and Matt Gubser. The comics kindly donated their time but OFA made sure to give them each Participation Ribbons to celebrate their special comedy snowflake-ness.
We also want to send out a special thank you to Tess Davis, Development Manager at Hospitality House for collecting all the donations, and Development Director Allan Manalo for stopping by to support us!
As for OFA SF, we have a Year End Chapter Meeting set for Tuesday, Dec. 12th at the SF Public Library. Details on Facebook here. Come meet our Chapter leaders, bring your friends and make new ones. We'll also be going out for drinks and a bite to eat after the meeting. Hope to see you there!
Until next time...
