November 13th, Monthly SBCA Member Social - UPDATE.

Thank you everyone that helped to make our November Member Social and food drive a huge success!!!

Congratulations, South Bay Community Association!

By now many of you have probably heard wild rumors about the food bank fund-raising drive combined with our Friday Social. Well, the truth is even better!

We collected a lot of food goods … plus $3,000! We started the evening Social with less than $2,000 collected during the day, then decided to wait to count totals until the mid-party break and discovered we had $2,677. No way was that going to keep us from an attempt to reach $2,750! Someone started singing and threatened that he would not stop until we reached our goal. Thankfully, the money poured in (to keep him quiet!) and we reached $2,800 in just seconds (thank you Dan Darrow for the last dollar). At the end of the evening a donor gave another $200 to get us to the grand total of $3,000! A lot of fun … and for a great cause.

In addition, the TimbreTones provided some great ‘50s and ‘60s music and we were rocking and dancing. Thank you, Nicole and Steve Frenzl, and Mike Derrenberger!

Finally, the food. Oh my, what an amazing selection of excellent eats for all who attended. This was by far the best variety I have ever seen. Great choices for everyone! Thank you!

A "Taste of Spain" November 19th was an incredible culinary and entertainment experience!
