We give a great deal of our time and talent to a few incredible non profit organizations in our community.  They have the expertise to do great things in this world – such as mentor at-risk youth, offer free and low cost health care, and some are uniquely responsible for the preservation of cultures that have touched my life in meaningful ways.  What we offer to them pales in comparison to the brilliant work that they each do in our world, and it is a pleasure to assist them in some small way, whether it be lending our expertise in marketing and public relations, planning events and galas, or making introductions to others in our community that might similarly be of assistance. It is with this in mind, that we continually strive to improve offerings to these clients, including a three day seminar last week in Northern California that specifically taught marketing and social media for the non profit organization.  We did attend every session; however, we were accused of making the journey as an excuse to dine out in San Francisco for every possible meal.  Those naysayers might have been on to something.

Here, we present 72 hours of dining gluttony.  If the mere mention of such gluttonous behavior makes you suspect, or worse, we invite you to visit the many nonprofit organizations that we call “friends” and “heroes!”  Please take a moment to peruse their websites, as well as their mission in our community.   Who knows, you may very well discover the very passion that you have been searching for in your own life!
