Singles Parties, May 20-24, 2008
The week began slowly with our West Contra Costa Singles Mixer on Tuesday, May 20 at La Strada Restaurant. Small group, although our singles interacted well and enjoyed the delicious appetizers. In these difficult economic times, especially with the high cost of gas, we are bringing the parties close to you. We thought the singles of West Contra Costa would appreciate this party scheduled for their convenience, but they just didn't show up in large numbers. Nevertheless, we will continue our policy of creating singles parties throughout the nine Bay Area counties, plus Santa Cruz and Monterey.
Our annual Silicon Valley Singles Convention, Friday, May 23, at the Wyndham San Jose, attracted a good crowd, and the party went well.
Likewise for our first-ever Singles Charity Ball in the East Bay, Saturday, May 24, at The Midtown Ballroom. We were concerned that we wouldn't get a good crowd because of the bad publicity Oakland often receives, but we actually drew an excellent turnout! I think our singles enjoyed donating to such a worthwhile cause. 100% of the money goes directly to The Seva Foundation's Sight Program. We raised $4,100 at this party, which will enable Seva to restore sight to approximately 82 blind people (at an average cost of $50 per eye surgery). If you did not get a chance to attend this party, please consider sending in your tax-deductible donation to The Seva Foundation, 1786 Fifth St., Berkeley CA 94710. A special thank you to our many sponsors of The Singles Charity Ball!
