Joey the Cat Fundraiser

11-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_8610On Wednesday, November 16, 2016 CommunityGrows Advisory Board hosted an evening of fun and games at Joey-the-Cat in the Mission District of San Francisco. Thanks to our sponsors Avila and Associates and Kaiser-Permanente, we enjoyed a great night of skeeball, pinball, hoops, ping-pong, air-ball, and Wack-a-Mole and raised money to support CommunityGrows.  11-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_8648We munched on goodies from Front Porch and Sugar and Spun, as well as wine from Plumpjack, Fort Point Brewery, Stag Dining Group and Souther Pacific Brewing Company. Folks lined up to have their photos taken at our Garden Booth. 11-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_8682There were skeeball competitions and lots of great conversations throughout the night. Guests were treated to a welcome by Advisory Board Co-Chair, Casey Johnson, and Barbara Wenger, Executive Director, and also included a video of CommunityGrows and shout-out from Ziek McCarter, Garden Educator and lead singer of the band Con Brio. A raffle of terrific items including dinner at State Bird and the Boxing Club, as well as a stay at the Monterey Tides Hotel rounded out the excitement of the evening. 11-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_8654A great time had by all, young and old. 11-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_868011-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_867511-16-16-joey-the-cat_img_8673Congratulation to our Advisory Board for working so hard, inviting their friends and making the evening a great success!11-16-16-joey-the-cat_cm_20161116_204917
