Support CUESA at glassybaby's Light the Bay
Thursday, September 22, 2016, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Would you give an hour of your time tonight to help CUESA win $55,555? What if we also told you we’re throwing you a party afterwards?
Our Ferry Building neighbor glassybaby is celebrating having donated $5 million to community groups through the sale of their handblown votives by giving away even more money. Their Light the Bay event will reward the top 10 nonprofit organizations that rally the largest teams to attend the lighting ceremony at the Ferry Plaza.
We are currently in 2nd place and need another 50 big-hearted persons to commit an hour of their time tonight. And it won’t cost you a dime! Generous CUESA donors have already underwritten the cost of all votives and just need you to hold them for the photo. Your hour of time means $55,555 to support San Francisco youth, local farmers, and CUESA’s work to change our food system for the better. We can’t do this without your help!
Please email Cindy at email@example.com to confirm your attendance TONIGHT at the Ferry Building. We need you to be there from 6:30-7:45pm, and a thank-you celebration with drinks and bites will follow. Details on our Facebook event.
If you would like to purchase a votive as well, you may do so here. We so deeply appreciate your time and support of CUESA! Hope to see you tonight!
